I draw pretty quick and messy in pencil on 11″x17″ tab size paper. Then I trace it neatly for the line art which most people see in the newspaper.

And here’s the color version for the Web and newspapers that print in color.

Somehow I think we’ll be drawing cartoons on this topic for quite some time.

Here is how the cartoon looks this morning in my local newspaper, the Santa Barbara News-Press.

So dark! I anticipate that all of my cartoons will darken when printed, but somehow I’m always surprised by how dark they get.
