My CagleCartoonist pal, Jeff Koterba, just put together a cool exhibition of his cartoons about the pandemic.  Here’s some pix as Jeff tells us about the show …

From Jeff Koterba:

“When art imitates…art.

Recently I drew a cartoon inspired by my own exhibit of cartoons. On display at Pottawattamie Arts, Culture and Entertainment in Council Bluffs, Iowa.  The exhibit consists of nearly 100 cartoons specifically about the pandemic (as far as I can tell, it’s the first cartoon exhibit on Covid in the world). Some are funny, while others are poingant and even inspirational—that’s my hope, anyway! The cartoons are displayed in concentric circles—in the manner of a European maze and take you on a timeline, from the start of the pandemic until today. Along the way viewers can not only see how my approach to drawing about Covid evolved but also how I made the switch to drawing digitally during those early days of lockdown.

As we were putting the finishing touches on the exhibit, an idea came to me that I should draw a cartoon about covid as a maze—in concentric circles. After I drew it, we printed it up and added it to the exhibit…
Now I can’t imagine the exhibit without it. Sort of a full circle kind of thing, you might say.   —Jeff Koterba

Want to see all of Jeff’s COVID cartoons? They are here. Take a look. I went to our PoliticalCartoons.com store, searched for Jeff Koterba and COVID, and all the cartoons popped up – more cool to see it in the round in Iowa, though.
