From back cover: Disguised as a book of innocent postcards, Slingshot is a dangerous collection of Eric Drooker's most notorious posters. Plastered on brick walls from New York to Berlin, tattooed on bodies from Kansas to Mexico City, Drooker's graphics continue to infiltrate and inflame the body politic.
"When the rush of war parades are over, a simple and elegant reminder of humanity remains -- in the work of Eric Drooker." --Sue Coe
Drooker's old Poe hallucinations of beauteous deathly reality transcend political hang-up and fix our present American Dreams." -- Allen Ginsberg

Drooker grew up in Manhattan's Stuyvesant Town, relatively close to the Lower East Side, which was then a working-class immigrant neighborhood with a tradition of left-wing political activism. Drooker developed an early interest in graphic arts and cartoons, particularly the woodcut novels of Frans Masereel and Lynd Ward and the underground comics of Robert Crumb.
