This Donald Trump cartoon will probably stay on the Cagle.com front page for a long time as I’m traveling between far too many conventions this month. I just got back from the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists convention in Columbus, Ohio. Tomorrow I’m headed off to a big editorial cartoonist confab in Caen, France. Then I’m off to another in Quito, Ecuador. After that there is the big annual editorial cartoonists weekend in St. Just le Martel, France.
These are stressful times for our profession as we’re squeezed between a changing business environment and terrorists who want to kill us, so the conventions take on special significance. All of these conventions have impressive security. The cartoonists have renewed esprit de corps as we struggle to come to grips with our new environment.
This is a tough world for editorial cartoonists, but at least we have Donald Trump to kick around, and that makes my world look bright.
