Gerrymandering!

Here’s my new cartoon about gerrymandering, with a kid drawing an accurate map of Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District in crayon on his living room wall. Gerrymandering is the process of drawing district lines, often house by house in crazy maps, to give an advantage to a particular party or candidate.

Gerrymandering will be more in the news soon as former president Obama has said he will be working hard on the issue and our former governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he may run for the Senate on the issue of gerrymandering. We’ll see a new round of congressional gerrymandering with the next census in 2020, with lots of battling for position taking place in the run up to the state elections where Republican legislators have been very successful in drawing crazy districts that gave them control of congress (Democrats are just as bad when they are in control.)

See me draw this one in real time, in the video below, and see a map of Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District!

In the next video see me coloring the cartoon in Adobe Photoshop on my Wacom Cintiq.

Cops, Beatings and Cell Phone Videos

It looks like cell phone videos of bad cops is making police all over America shy away from their jobs enough to make the crime rate soar. I’ve had this cartoon in mind for a long time, but for some reason I wasn’t happy with the layout and it took me a long time to draw – too long. I’m still not quite sure about the colors of the thought balloons. Oh well, time to move on, for me and for the police.

Baltimore Media Flies

Like flies attracted to stinky poop, the media is drawn to riots and looting, with little interest in the other issues surrounding the stinky poop.

We have a great collection of cartoons about the Baltimore Riots here.
