Jeb Can Fix It!

I’ve been seeing a bunch of very complicated cartoons about Jeb Bush’s attempt at a Jeb!2.0 campaign – with Jeb fixing cars that are hopelessly broken, Jeb as a plumber failing as the plumbing floods – and the like.

For my Jeb cartoon I started with the idea that I wanted to do something simpler, and I really wanted to do a plumber’s butt crack. There’s a famous story about cartoonist Steve Kelley who was fired from his job at the San Diego Union-Tribune for drawing about this much of a butt-crack. I think Steve’s experience motivates all of the cartoonists to draw butt-cracks.
