Here are my last four cartoons. The most recent is below, on the press growing less cute and adorable for Obama. I think if I drew puppies in all of my editorial cartoons, my work would be much more popular. I didn’t quite know how I would handle this one when I started drawing, so the rough sketch is a bit of a mess.
I was thinking of making this a four panel cartoon at first, with the doggie growing progressively bigger and a caption, but the simple two panel format won out. here is the line art that most people will see in their newspapers that print in black and white.
And here is the color. Readers love the doggies.
I drew the cartoon below when Obama made his first statement about the IRS scandal. here’s the black and white most people see.
And here’s the color.
Before that I did this one on the ongoing, outrageous, sexual assault scandals in the military.
And I drew this “Energizer Bunny” cartoon about the Benghazi Scandal that the Republicans can’t bear to see fade away.
There was a time when I would see an Energizer Bunny cliche editorial cartoon every week. Alas, those were the good old days.
Here are my most recent cartoons and the sketches that, for some reason, you like to see. The first one is on Obama’s apparent transformation into a more liberal Obama in his second term. First the pencil sketch.
That’s really Hillary’s testimony in the small type in her speech balloon, and that’s what she was really thinking in the thought balloon. Hillary is fun to draw, and the glasses are great.
At the right is my most recent cartoon about Defense Secretary Panetta’s announcement that all areas of the military, that had previously been closed to women, will now be open to qualified women – a change that is long overdue.
This cartoon by conservative cartoonist Glenn McCoy motivated me to draw my cartoon below. Glenn forgot the most obvious monkey and I thought I needed to correct the oversight.
Last month I corrected an error in a cartoon by Glenn’s even-more-conservative brother, Gary. The McCoys are such an inspiration!
