TRUE Crazy Stuff 4!

Here’s a new batch of my old TRUE cartoons. This first one is a self-portrait of younger me, sitting on the toilet, talking on my land-line rotary phone. Looking at the old True cartoons makes me feel young again, until I notice details that make me feel old.

TRUE Crazy Stuff 3!

Most of this new batch of my old TRUE panels came from my collection about entertainment and celebrities. I ended up killing most of these cartoons because they were so stale. I forget how different things were back in 1995. This edited batch of cartoons makes 1995 seem not so different from today – even though one cartoons shows a guy reading a book on the toilet; we may not read books anymore, but toilets haven’t changed much.

Star Trek is still familiar 23 years later. Mattel’s Barbie is still popular, but other toys in my TRUE cartoons are forgotten – for example Barney the Dinosaur was big in 1995. I forgot all about Barney. The first cartoon below is about Lassie, who we remembered as a doggie celebrity back in 1995. Do people remember Lassie now?

Our Proud Olympic Swimmers

I remember the jocks back in high school were a bunch of arrogant jerks, so the behavior of the American Olympic swimmers is no surprise to me. No one should look to self-entitled athletes as representative of their countries, unless we look to them as representative of the biggest jerks in their countries.

The epidemic of bad behavior among athletes is on ugly display in sex scandals at colleges across the USA, which led yesterday to the interesting resignation of Ken Starr, the former president of Baylor University where he oversaw a coverup of Baylor’s football players’ sexual assaults. Remember Ken Starr? He was the sanctimonious independent prosecutor in charge of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” to bring down Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. What goes around comes around, huh? Irony is a bitch.

Ryan Lochte, Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and a security guard. (Notice how the swimmers naturally seek out the water.)

My cartoon is based on early news reports that described the drunken athletes breaking a door at a gas station where they stopped to go to the bathroom. More recent reports describe the swimmers peeing on the gas station building because it had no bathroom, with Lochte tearing a framed advertisement off of the building’s wall rather than breaking a door. I suppose my cartoon could be criticized as “inaccurate” but I still think it captures the gist of the event.

This swimmers scandal has stolen the oxygen from the rest of the Olympics and it has given American cartoonists a welcome respite from our toxic presidential campaign. Here are a couple of my favorite swimmer-jerk cartoons:

This one is by Sean Delonas, the long-time cartoonist for The New York Post who has started up drawing again for Cagle Cartoons. The chickens make me laugh.

 

This Steve Sack “dope” cartoon sums it all up.

 

Sometime I think that, if not for Pinocchio, there would only be half as many editorial cartoons. This one is by Dave Granlund.

Watch me draw my cartoon in real time on YouTube below!

 

Now, watch me color the cartoon on Photoshop!

Tennessee Bathroom Bill?

Here’s my new Tennessee flag, commemorating the legislature’s top priority, a prospective special session to regulate transgender access to bathrooms.

The Tennessee legislature is all in a lather to hold a special session to make a bathroom bill much like North Carolina’s infamous bathroom bill. Read about it here in my local newspaper, the Tennessean.

2000px-Flag_of_Tennessee.svgWhat conservative Republicans have in common is an insatiable passion for regulating all things sexual. That’s the Tennessee flag at the right. The story behind the flag is fascinating. In the 1800’s Tennessee hired a graphic designer to make a new flag. The three stars in the center stand for Western, Middle and Eastern Tennessee. The stripe at the right means nothing – the designer just thought it made the flag look better. Gotta love history.

North Carolina Bathroom Bill Lawsuit

As ugly as the North Carolina Bathroom bill is, I welcome the departure from Trump/Hillary cartoons. I worried a bit that showing the Statue of Liberty’s butt would be too rude for editors to stomach, but there is something about her being entirely green that seems to make her statuesque butt not seem to stand out as quite so rude. I know editors don’t like bare butts, and cartoons with butts don’t get printed much – still, as a cartoonist it is my responsibility to draw bare butts when the news compels me to do so. Here’s today’s cartoon …

You can watch me draw this one in real time in the video below. There were thunderstorms in Nashville that played havoc with my Twitch feed, so I wasn’t getting many comments from fans and I didn’t have much to say. Perhaps this is a good one to watch at double speed with no sound.

The next YouTube video shows me coloring the cartoon in Photoshop …
