The Top Ten Cartoons of the Week!

The good news? Home prices are dropping. Unfortunately, interest rates continue to climb as the Federal Reserve fights to slow down inflation.

Several of our most popular cartoons this week revolve around the high prices we’re all continuing to pay. Dave Whamond’s funny Monty Python riff on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was also popular with editors.

The number eight cartoon about the “Fall Equinox” is a correction of our number one cartoon from last week. Cartoonist Guy Parsons wrote the cartoon about the “Fall Solstice” and, of course, there is no such thing. A group of school children wrote to Guy about the error, and Guy made this corrected cartoon, which was also widely published. No adults complained about the “Fall Solstice” — just kids.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

Top Ten Cartoons of September 16th, 2022!

While cartoonists have been covering the invasion since February, Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia last week drew new attention on a conflict that’s raged on for nearly seven months.

This week’s most reprinted cartoon was a funny poke at the debate over daylight saving time drawn by cartoonist Guy Parsons. Back in March, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023. But like everything else in Washington these days, nothing has happened since.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

Top Ten Cartoons of the Past Week!

President Joe Biden delivered a speech in Philadelphia last week where he called out “MAGA Republicans” and claimed former President Donald Trump and his supporters are a threat to American democracy.

Naturally, our liberal cartoonists supported what Biden said during his speech, while our conservative cartoonists thought he was a hypocrite thanks to his tone and bluntness.

Editors liked cartoons on an interesting mix of topics this week, including Labor Day, space junk, and new British Prime Minister Liz Truss.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

hmmm … We’re COVID Cheerleaders? Top Ten COVID Cartoons

Researchers like to categorize and count things. Most of the few scholarly studies of editorial cartoons involve making subjective judgements about cartoons to divide the cartoons into categories selected for the study.

I gave Political Science professor Dr. Jody Baumgartner full access to our archives to do a study on editorial cartoons about Coronavirus. Baumgartner and his colleague Dr. Hanna Kassab categorized and counted only CagleCartoons.com content, and their study has just been published; see it here.

The study asked if political cartoonists are “Critics” or “Cheerleaders.” The researchers studied only CagleCartoons that were about COVID during the time of the pandemic.

The conclusion of the study? Political cartoonists are “cheerleaders” for the establishment. We prefer to think of ourselves as critics.  Calling us “cheerleaders” sounds a bit rude.

Perhaps Baumgartner and Kassab are conservative and were looking for more cartoons bashing Dr. Fauci, resisting mask mandates, promoting conspiracy theories, and shilling Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, injected bleach and anti-vaxxer nonsense.

Here are the ten most reprinted pandemic cartoons since 2019. (Keep in mind that editors like for us to be cheerleaders for truth.) Congratulations to Jeff Koterba for taking four out of ten, and to Rick McKee and Dave Granlund for each having two on the Top Ten!

August is typically a slow news month, but between the FBI searching Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and the national shortage of teachers, there’s been plenty for cartoonists to draw about.

Trump’s Top Secret Boxes

Here is my cartoon about Trump with his collection of twelve boxes of Top Secret documents. When I finished this and sent it out to newspapers I counted the boxes again and noticed that I had drawn thirteen boxes.  So much for my attempt at accuracy.  It looks like I made Trump’s problem look worse than it really is.

Here are some of my favorite cartoons about Trump’s secret documents stash from the Cagle Cartoonists.

Back to School – Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

Kids are returning to school, and cartoonists sharpened their pencils this week on the many issues districts across the country face, whether it’s a shortage of teachers or out-of-control supply costs due to inflation.

There was also that FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Largo residence in Florida. While editors reprinted a number of our cartoons on the incident, just one cartoon featuring Trump made it onto our top ten list. Editors don’t like running Trump cartoons nearly as much as cartoonists love drawing them.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. Jeff Koterba, Cagle.com

#2. John Cole, Scranton Times-Tribune

 

#3. John Darkow, Columbia Missouran

 

#4. Dave Granlund, Cagle.com

China Tantrum for SALE –SOLD

8/15/22 — Sorry, this one has sold. (Thanks, Blake, and congratulations on your first NFT.)  I expect to put another drawing up for sale here later next week —Keep an eye out for it.


I recently drew this cartoon about China’s tantrum over Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan –and the original art is for sale.

I almost never sell my original art and I haven’t tried selling originals online before, so I thought I would give it a test and see what happens with this one. One reason I don’t sell originals is that my drawings don’t look like what you would expect from looking at the finished cartoon.  I draw in pencil, with a hard black line on vellum, then I scan the drawing as line art and add color in Photoshop.  People usually think I draw in ink.  Here’s what the original looks like …

I also draw bigger than most cartoonists. I placed a ruler on the drawing to show the scale.  My paper is 14″ x 17″. Some cartoonists draw so neatly in ink that it is hard to tell if the drawing is an original or a copy – with a pencil drawing, an original looks like an original.  I like the look and feel of pencil, and I draw with a pencil like it is ink.  A pencil drawing looks great in a frame!

This cartoon was reprinted in lots of newspapers. I guess people like panda bears.

So here’s the deal, if anyone wants this rare Daryl Cagle original, the price is only $300.00, and $35.00 shipping and handling mailed to an address in the USA, plus sales tax if you’re located in California. Email me or call (805) 969-2829 for payment information and to give me your delivery info.  Shipping will cost more to a foreign address.  What a deal! 

If you’re the one, lucky purchaser, you’ll also get a nice, signed color print of the final art, a high resolution jpg file so you can print it out yourself however you like, and an NFT!  The NFT consists of wording confirming the non-exclusive copyright license of personal reproduction rights and the bragging right that you own the NFT for this cartoon. There’s no crypto currency or blockchain to hassle with; an NFT only consists of wording that licenses an image.  And I’m happy to inscribe wording that you like on the original and print –in beautiful, matching, pencil.

So, this is a test.  Lets see what happens!  Come buy an original editorial cartoon!

Thanks,

Daryl

Recession Rumblings – Top 10, August 4th, 2022

Are we in a recession or not? Experts have been debating what’s going on after figures released last week showed that while the U.S. economy shrank for the second straight quarter, job growth continues to be strong.
