GOP Deflects to Seuss and Potato

As congressional Republicans unanimously voted to kill the popular economic stimulus plan, they diverted attention to Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss. Cancel Culture is, popular with their base and it is easy for them to come back to the comfort zone. Here’s my cartoon and some of my GOP + Seuss + Potato favorites.

Harry and Meghan

Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey has been dominating the news, and there have been lots of great cartoons. I watched “The Crown” and it seemed to me that the things Meghan had to say were in keeping with the miserable, backbiting royal family we’ve come to know on TV.  Here are my favorites from the CagleCartoonists!

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – March 6, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending March 6th, 2021. Congratulations to Jeff Koterba who won the week with the #1 and #10 cartoons. Congrats to Steve Sack who got the overall most reprints for the week with the #2 and #4 cartoons.

And kudos to the other cartoonists in the Top Ten this week: Bruce Plante, Dave Whamond, Rick McKee, Daryl Cagle (me), Adam Zyglis, and John Darkow.

This week we had six pandemic cartoons, two on Dr. Seuss, one on New York Governor Cuomo and one on the murdering Saudi prince. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 60+ cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.

Texas COVID Party

Texas Governor Greg Abbot just dropped COVID restrictions on business and masks, at a time when new variants of the virus are threatening a new resurgence. Mississippi too. Some other states dropping restrictions to a lesser degree. Bad timing for public health but it is always good timing for cartoonists.  Here’s mine:

Jeff Koterba on Editorial Cartooning

Jeff Koterba is one of the most popular CagleCartoonists! Jeff tells us what’s up with him and shares some of his recent favorites. See Jeff’s archive on Cagle.com here. – Daryl

When my full-time cartooning job at the local newspaper was eliminated a few months ago, I gave myself exactly one day to grieve. I’d been there for over 30 years and while it broke my heart to lose my job, I knew that better things were ahead. The next day, I decided to learn everything I could about Patreon. And, as it turns out, Patreon is not only a blessing for me as a cartoonist, but it’s giving my readers far more interesting and timely content than ever before.

For those not familiar with Patreon, it’s a fresh take on the traditional concept of artists creating work with the support of patrons.

As much as I love poking fun at politicians, I equally enjoy drawing about the things that impact us all very directly…

It’s no secret that newspapers are hurting. But journalism—and, I would argue, editorial cartoons—are now more essential to our democracy than ever. If you see my cartoons published here on Cagle.com or in other publications around the country, it’s thanks to Cagle and to my supporters on Patreon. It’s because of them that I’m able to create several cartoons each week on the topics that impact us all.

If nothing else, Covid inspires a new way to look at age-old situations like dating …

Also, now that I’m free of my local newspaper’s deadline, I’m able to draw cartoons whenever there is a breaking story, publishing the work immediately. Which means content that’s more timely than ever before for you.

And beyond that, I pull back the curtain on my creative process and invite supporters along the way, as I share sketches-in-progress, not to mention time-lapse videos of my process like this one.

I drew this cartoon as I watched live coverage of what was happening in Washington that day…soon after, I followed up with this cartoon.

Plus, there are lots of other perks. I even host an exclusive monthly Zoom show, “Koterba’s Theory of Creativity,” where I chat with guests about the creative process. In fact, my guest for March will be Rick Kirkman, not only one of my supporters on Patreon, but the artist behind the popular comic strip, “Baby Blues.”

I love connecting with my readers and I’d love for you to stop by my page and check it out!

Democracy’s return to flight .
Mostly, I’m inspired by news events. But sometimes, I’m inspired by what I see around me in my daily life. And when I kept seeing discarded masks, I knew there had to be a cartoon in there somewhere …

Daryl’s Video Interview with Cloudflare


had zoom interview with Cloudflare, the big internet company that runs a generous charitable program called “Project Galileo” for small journalism sites that suffer from lots of hacker attacks -they provide robust and sophisticated services that make CagleCartoons.com, PoliticalCartoons.com and Cagle.com possible – services that we’d never be able to afford without the generosity of Project Galileo.

 

Cloudflare is a hero to us and to many other small journalism sites.  In this video I talk about the attacks we suffer from and how Cloudflare defends us – and I talk generally about the editorial cartooning profession and my own cartoons. Take a look!

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – February 27, 2021

The Biden Administration is declassifying and releasing an intelligence report that concludes that Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman order the murder of Washington Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed and sawed into pieces when we visited the Saudi Arabian embassy in Istanbul to get a wedding license.

Here’s one I drew earlier – but I forgot to send to newspapers, so I’m sending this oldie out like it’s new.

Daryl’s Exhibit in Bangalore

Our friends at the Indian Institute of Cartoonists are putting on an ambitious exhibition of my work in Bangalore, India from March 6th through 27th. If you happen to be in Bangalore next month, this is a must-see!

I regret that we’re all locked down from traveling with the pandemic, and I won’t be able to visit the exhibition. I visited India on a State Department speaking trip in 2012 and I was impressed with the talent and vitality of the cartooning community in India – there are lots of great cartoonists in India and I’d love to go back!  Here’s the info on the exhibition.
