Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – May 15, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending May 15th, 2021.

Two stories dominated the news this week, The Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the vote by Republicans in Congress to strip Liz Cheney of her leadership position; there were lots of cartoons about both topics, but none were popular with newspaper editors who preferred cartoons about the pandemic and inflation.

Congratulations to Jeff Koterba who took the #1 spot and to Dick Wright who had two cartoons in the Top Ten last week!  Kudos to the other cartoonists who made the most reprinted list: Dave Whamond, Dave Granlund, Steve Sack, Kevin Siers, Gary McCoy, Dave Fitzsimmons and John Darkow.

Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. These are the cartoons that editors picked last week.


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.

Heavy Spending

Here’s my new cartoon on the heavy spending in President Biden’s Infrastructure Bill.  I’m seeing inflation everywhere (except in official reports of the inflation rate). A whole lot of borrowed money has been pumped into the economy by Trump, and now Biden.

I haven’t drawn many conservative cartoons over the Trump years, but looking back on Obama’s eight years I was drawing a lot of cartoons that criticized Obama. Cartoonists like to criticize and with Democrats controlling Congress and the presidency, more of our CagleCartoonists, who aren’t know of drawing conservative cartoons, are drawing conservative cartoons.  Here are a few examples …

Loyalty to Trump Gives Me a Headache

Here’s my new one, about loyalty to Trump headaches.

This one is based on an oldie from about 8 years ago, when Republicans were also bashing their heads for no good reason.  Things don’t change much.

Crazy Republicans and Military Sexual Assault Bill

Often I get a message from Facebook that shows one of my old cartoons and says “This is what you were doing seven years ago.” And I sometimes think, “Wow, that cartoon is just as good today.” Here are a couple of examples of that – I changed a few words on seven year old cartoons and re-released them as “revisions.” Here are the crazy Republicans, 2021 version …

And here’s an updated Military Sexual Assault Bill cartoon that was a cartoon about a “Military Sexual Assault Report” eight years ago the report made news and led to no change at all.

This is my illustration of the toxic work environment in the military. Most problems don’t go away. Maybe this new bill will help.

Woke Corporations

Republicans are livid over corporations that are cutting back on their support for GOP candidates over their election fraud lies and efforts to disenfranchise likely Democratic voters. At the same time, President Biden proposes big tax increases for corporations.

My First NFT Drop Saturday at 2:00pm EDT

On Saturday, April 17th, at 2:00pm Eastern time I’ll have my first drop of NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) of TEN of my favorite editorial cartoons. I think this will be the first NFT drop by any editorial cartoonist and there is a lot of potential in  NFTs for our troubled profession. See my page with the soon-to-drop cartoons at: https://app.portion.io/#editorialcartoons without prices, prior to the Saturday drop/release date. At 2:00pm Eastern time on Saturday, modest prices will appear (not auctions), in the crypto currency Etherium. I know that’s complex. Each is an edition of ONE, so there will be only ONE NFT of each of any of my cartoons. We’ll see what happens.

So here are the cartoons! They were all very widely reprinted in newspapers and were favorites with readers.

 

#1

The first one is one of my most reprinted cartoons. It was the cover of one of our Best Political Cartoons of the Year books and has been used as a magazine illustration lots of times.

Here it is on the cover of a national magazine. I didn’t know it was a conservative cartoon when I was drawing it.

#2

This cartoon is actually my most reprinted cartoon ever. Some publisher licenses it every month or two. It has been used in lots of education settings, and teachers seem fond of it.

 

#3

This is an oldie that never goes out of style, every time the Republicans lose an election, this cartoon comes back in reprints.

 

#4

I drew this cartoon when I first got my Apple Watch and it seemed to nag me all time. This was just an everyday cartoon, but the NFT experts at Portion.io wanted me to include a cartoon about tech, so here it is.

 

#5

I drew this one at the time of the Ferguson protests and it was another very widely reprinted one.

 

#6

This one wasn’t wildly popular with editors. I think editors don’t like cartoons about butts or cursing – that said, it is one of my favorites. Politicians talk out of their asses, even if editors don’t want to see it.

#7

Readers aren’t much interested in any cartoons about foreign issues, but among the world topics, China bashing is usually the most popular. One of my goals in selecting this batch of cartoons was to have a variety of topics, so I could see how they would perform in NFTs with collectors who are likely have very different interests than Cagle.com readers and newspaper editors. They tend to be wealthy and worldly, and American.

#8

I drew this one when California legalized marijuana and I included it because I like it. We’ll see of the sophisticated NFT collectors like to puff the ganja.

 

#9

This one is one of my favorites and was widely reprinted.

 

#10

I drew this one when I was living in Tennessee, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting. The NRA thinks everyone would be safer with a gun, because bad guys would have to watch out, and that was the prevailing attitude I saw in Tennessee. It is nice to be back in California.

That’s it!  My first NFT drop, and probably the first NFT drop by any editorial cartoonist. Wish me luck, and take a look at my page on Portion after 2:00pm Saturday and we’ll see if these sell.
