TB from nyc: Seek to broaden your understanding of art much? How's the cartoon business these days?

The politics and social significance of Mr Kentridge's artwork is interesting. But what about the vague, highly mediocre draftsmanship? Does he ever hope to improve the dicipline and strength of his drawing, or is it too late in his career for that?
