Bolton Book!

Former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, has a new book full of salacious details about Donald Trump. According to a report based on an unredacted version of the book, Trump demanded of China’s president Xi, “Make sure I’m elected,” and he told Xu that he approved of China building “concentration camps” for their Muslim minority. Nasty stuff. The cartoonists are all over it. Come look!

China Digests Hong Kong

While the world is absorbed by the coronavirus, China’s nominal legislature decided take away any doubts about Hong Kong independent “special status.” Protestors are now facing the full brunt of China’s heavy hand. I drew this as the Chinese panda digesting Hong Kong, and burping.

I debated whether I should make the burpy umbrellas yellow; yellow umbrellas were the symbol of Hong Kong’s protestors in 2014, and more recent protests have embraced black umbrellas as protection against projectiles and water cannons from police, so I went with black

There aren’t many cartoons about Hong Kong now and my cartoon probably won’t get much ink – still, this should be a time for Hong Kong cartoons. I have selected some of my favorite Hong Kong protest cartoons from the past few years. At the end there are three Hong Kong cartoons from Luojie, our CagleCartoonist who draws for the China Daily, China’s official English language newspaper and voice of the communist government.

Here’s another one of mine …

Blame China! Part 3

It looks like President Trump will continue to blame China for the coronavirus, deflecting criticism for the administration’s late and slipshod reaction to the pandemic. China isn’t blameless, but how much China is blamed is up to the cartoonists.

I’m starting out with three more cartoons from Luojie, our CagleCartoonist from Beijing who draws for The China Daily, China’s state owned, national English language newspaper. Loujie draws the Chinese government’s official point of view, pushing back against the criticism coming from America. Defending China is not a popular point of view with cartoonists around the world and Luojie is likely the only cartoonist seen drawing this point of view in newspapers outside of China.

Blame China! Part 2

Here is part two of our BLAME CHINA cartoons!  See part one with cartoons defending China pushing against criticism. Since we hear so much about China from the Trump administration, it is interesting that most of the China bashing cartoons come from the international cartoonists.

Please take a look at our Cagle.com/Heroes page, take a look at my video below, and consider making a contribution. If enough fans make a small, monthly contribution, we can save Cagle.com and keep our cartoonists drawing, at a time when the cartoons are more important than ever. We need you.

Here are the rest of the top ten most popular cartoons from last week! Steve Sack has THREE cartoons in the top ten this week!

Jeff Koterba has TWO cartoons in the top ten this week.

Dave Granlund, who had a cartoon that tied for most popular of the week (above), has a SECOND cartoon in the top ten.

This popular cartoon is by John Cole.

Tomorrow we’ll have part two of the BLAME CHINA cartoons (see Blame China! Part One in case you missed it), and then we’ll have a new remembrance by my cartoonist buddy, the legendary Randy Enos.

Blame China! Part 1

President Trump has recently been more vocal in blaming China for the coronavirus, as have many voices in the media. China is blamed for being slow to respond to the virus, for silencing Chinese critics and for releasing dubious statistics and propaganda. There are reports that American intelligence agencies are investigating claims that the virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan that was studying the virus in bats. China has pushed back hard against these accusations and we can see the blame game clearly in our cartoons.  This is the first of two “Blame China” collections of cartoons.

Cartoon by Arcadio Esquivel, Costa Rica

I’m starting out with the cartoons from Luojie, our CagleCartoonist from Beijing who draws for The China Daily, China’s state owned, national English language newspaper. Loujie draws the Chinese government’s official point of view, pushing back against the criticism coming from America.

Interestingly, most of the “blame China” cartoons come from international cartoonists and few come from American cartoonists, even though China focuses on criticism coming from the USA.

See BLAME CHINA! Part 2


Luojie

Only one other CagleCartoonist takes the Chinese point of view, Hajo from France …

Hajo

All the rest of the cartoonists have jumped on the “blame China” bandwagon …

The next three come from our Dutch, photo-realistic cartoonist, Bart van Leeuwen …

First to Sound the Alarm

President Trump claims that he wasn’t late in taking action about the pandemic, he argues that he was early, by declaring a travel ban on China on January 31st, to take effect on February 2nd. Trump’s claims are in dispute and there have been many reports of early warnings that the White House didn’t respond to, and recommendations of stronger measures that Trump should have ordered earlier.

Among those sounding an early alarm about the coronavirus threat are the world’s editorial cartoonists. Here is a batch of cartoons from our cartoon first-responders who were among the first to draw about the threat.

This quote is from our conservative cartoonist, Rick McKee,

My first coronavirus cartoon is dated January 31, and I remember thinking at the time, “I wonder if enough people know about this to get the reference?” I was following the story very closely while the virus was still limited to China and hearing stories about how they were quarantining residents by welding them in their homes, monitoring them with drones and building emergency hospitals in 10 days. I knew this was not a normal virus and if it came to the US, things would get bad very quickly. My son lives in Los Angeles and I remember the first documented case of the COVID-19 virus was in L.A. on January 23 at LAX. I texted him that day to alert him to start preparing for the possibility of a city-wide lockdown.  Rick McKee

And here’s Rick’s cartoon …

My Corona Virus Cartoons

Here are my three most recent Corona Virus cartoons.

This is the most recent one, on the stock market drop, the oil price drop and the Corona Virus …

I actually like the line art better than the color version.

Editors and readers always like color or grayscale better than line art like this – but I like line art versions of cartoons best –without tone. There is something more elegant about line art, even if I can’t convince anyone else that line art is nicer.

My next cartoon has the Corona Virus licking the continental United States. Here’s my rough sketch. I looked up a map of the USA on Google, printed it and taped it into place, so I could get the shapes of the states right when I traced it with my finished lines. In the old days I would do things like this on a “lucygraph”. (These are better days.)

 

And here’s the final art …

 

Back in February, when the Corona Virus was only in China, I drew this one about the world freaking out …

That’s it!  Three cartoons today!

Corona Virus Quarantine Blues in China

UPDATED March 6, 2020, with a new cartoon – scroll to the bottom of the post to see it, along with another explanation from Benedick.

I got some interesting emails from Chinese cartoonist and freelance photographer, Benedick Bowen, with some cartoons about his experiences with China’s extreme quarantine measures to restrict the spread of the Corona Virus, COVID-19.

At first, Chinese authorities tried to downplay the threat and punished a few whistleblowers who sounded the alarm –we had the same experience his with Preisdent Trump’s comments minimizing the virus threat. Benedick writes:

“… I heard about the ‘unexplained virus’ was was told it could be controlled and not contracted from human to human, many times on the the Chinese domestic media.

When I heard the news, I heard many people were rushing to buy face masks and medical alcohol and food. Some pessimistic friends thought that the material supply shortage would keep long and may wreak famine. My father asked me to buy rice, wheat flour and oil for months use. I didn’t agree with them … but I did buy much more food than before.

Finally Beijing was quarantined. People were not allowed to go on the street at will. Employees have to ask their companies to write out a “testimony” to get a pass for an employee to leave his home for work.  I am not an employee so I can not leave my house.  I can only go out within 3 hours per day to buy food.  My son’s kindergarten delayed the opening time few times.  By now we have bought 60 kilograms rice and 50 kilograms wheat flour and many bottles of oil. “

Benedick has been suffering from the quarantine, and from not being able to ply his trade as a freelance photographer while he’s stuck in his house, because he has no employer to write a note to the authorities, he is stuck at home. (We might face Corona Virus quarantines in California too, where freelance photographers are banned under the new law AB 5, so there will be no employer excuses in the USA either.)

Here are more of Benedick’s cartoons …

 

UPDATED March 6, 2020
Benedick writes: “This cartoon is about the quarantine in China’s rural areas. The security guards who wear red armbands supervise the people to wear face masks and stay home. The security guards have no enforcement power so they always make violence when people don’t obey them.”
