Bath Time Cartoons!

As I drew my bathtub cartoon today, I was thinking about my favorite bathtub cartoons. Really. This is Iran’s Supreme Leader having his clean, happy time.


Bathtub fun is a cartoonists’ staple. Here’s my buddy, Steve Sack of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune with a Trump tub.


My bathtub favorite is this Trump and Li’l Kim classic from Taylor Jones.


Here’s what Chinese cartoonist Luojie thinks of how Uncle Sam manages his toys.


Here’s the oil bath-time of death from Mexican cartoonist, Dario Castillejos.


It isn’t really a bathtub cartoon, but Dutch photo cartoonist Bart van Leeuwen has a similar (but better) take on the same theme as my cartoon, at the beach.


Bart’s magnum opus is this beach cartoon about Trump and his wall. Bart loves the beach.

Now that we ended up at the beach, I think I need another bath. Here’s an old Obama favorite that could work as a Trump cartoon today.

TRUE Sex 2!

Another new collection of a dozen of my old TRUE cartoons about SEX! Take a look below!



Ukraine, Putin and Obama at the Beach

The Charles Atlas comic book ad that is burned into my memory.

I collected comic books as a kid – thousands of comic books. The Charles Atlas ad at the right was burned into my brain. The ad didn’t influence me to exercise (I’m too lazy for that) but it motivated me to draw the cartoon above, with Obama, Ukraine and Putin at the beach.

Ukraine is a tough metaphor because we don’t really have any good visual icons or characters that scream “Ukraine” at a glance, so I’ve taken to depicting Ukraine as a pudgy, braided, blond chick.

She is wearing a bathing suit in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, but I’m sure American readers won’t notice that.  In the drawing below, she is with caveman-Putin, wearing traditional, Ukrainian garb …

Here she is again, in the same clothes, getting robbed by Putin while Obama stands by …

Putin has his own traditional garb – he doesn’t wear a shirt.

My last Charles Atlas metaphor cartoon is below, from more than ten years ago during the run-up George W. Bush’s war in Iraq.  Things don’t change much as we’re seeing the media push war on us all over again.
