COVID Follows Kids Home From School

President Trump threatens to take money away from schools that don’t have all of their students attending in physical classes. Trump argues that kids get coronavirus at a much lower rate, but the science shows that kids over nine years old transmit the disease to others at the same rate as adults –so kids will be bringing COVID home to Mom, Dad and Grandma. Here’s my new cartoon …

I hate showing my rough sketches, but people keep asking me to show them, so here’s the messy sketch. Ugh.

Cartoons about school and the pandemic are among the most popular with editors. Here are some of my favorite, recent coronavirus/school cartoons from the CagleCartoonists.

Dr. Fauci – Part 3

Here’s my new cartoon about Trump and Dr. Fauci. This has been an interesting couple of weeks as White House bigwigs have been anonymously dishing dirt on Dr. Fauci, followed by Trump’s advisor, Peter Navarro, writing an op-ed in USA Today bashing Fauci, making false claims that USA Today later had to walk back. Fauci’s realism conflicts with Trump’s push to minimize the perception of the coronavirus threat.

Don’t miss Dr Fauci PART 1,and Dr Fauci PART 2!

This is a very difficult time for journalism as newspapers and news sites are losing their advertisers, who are shuttered during the pandemic. It is the same with Cagle Cartoons, as our newspaper clients are getting later and later in paying their bills, making cash flow difficult for us as well.

The pandemic may be the end for many of the newspapers that support our profession, but we can survive with your help. If you are a Cagle.com fan, please make a small contribution to support the cartoons.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – July 11, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (July 4 through July 11, 2020). As usual, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons.  Also, this week we’re back to the typical pattern of a steep curve, where the most popular cartoons with newspaper editors far exceeded all the other cartoons in reprints. Seven of the Top Ten are about coronavirus, with three about “back to school,” which is a topic that editors love right now.

Dave Whamond dominated this week with #1 and #2 cartoons that far outpaced the others on the list with close to twice as many reprints as the rest. John Darkow has an impressive three cartoons in the Top Ten this week. Dave Granlund also has an impressive performance with two cartoons on the list. Kudos to the three other cartoonists who made the Top Ten this week, John Cole, Jeff Koterba and Bruce Plante.  Great work, gentlemen!

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

#1

Congratulations to Dave Whamond who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon this week.

#2

Dave Whamond also drew the #2 most reprinted cartoon this week!

 

#3

John Darkow has three cartoons in the Top Ten this week, including this one that is tied for third place.

 

#3

Dave Granlund has two cartoons in the Top Ten and shares 3rd place.

 

#5

John Cole takes 5th place. If I was drawing this gag I probably would have put president Trump in the place of the generic economist and it occurred to me that if John had done that, this cartoon probably wouldn’t have made it into the Top Ten. Drawings of Trump make newspaper editors run the other way.

#6

Here is John Darkow‘s second of three cartoons in the Top Ten.  Color cartoons get more downloads from editors, so this one really hit the editorial sweet spot to make it into the Top Ten. Editors love “back to school” cartoons about the pandemic.

 

#7

Bruce Plante is in 7th place.

 

#8

Jeff Koterba takes for 8th place.

 

#9

Here is John Darkow‘s third cartoon in the Top Ten.

#10

Dave Granlund claims the ten-spot with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

More Masks!

The left/right divide is clear to see with masks, with the right claiming that masks violate their individual freedoms, as they spread the virus with their barefaced bluster. Here’s my new cartoon …

I like those videos we see on TV, showing the spray under green laser light, so I wanted to draw the spray with some psychedelic panache. I could draw infectious, oral spray all day long.

(For the wonks: People always tell me that want to see my rough sketches, so here you go. I drew the girl on the right a little big so I printed her out at 90% and moved her a little to the right, and taped it in place. The “Don’t Tread on Me” snake was dropped in with Photoshop.)

Cartoons about masks are the most popular cartoons with editors recently. Here are some of the new, most reprinted, mask cartoons.

COVID California

We’re having an alarming increase in coronavirus cases in Southern California. Restaurants are closed. Hospitals are filling up. Masks are mandatory as Trumpies demand their rights to go maskless. Fox News and President Trump tell us not to believe our lying eyes.

This California Bear cartoon seems especially apt right now. I drew this one a few years ago as California was suffering from an economic malaise and a variety of other problems that seem trivial now. I dusted this oldie off, gave it a fresh coat of paint and it is better now than ever, so I sent it out to newspapers again.

Our past economic problems seem quaint now. As I was rummaging around in my bear flag oldies I found the next one about California drowning in a sea of red ink. Cartoons like this don’t travel well. Outside of the USA, people don’t know our California flag, and they don’t know what “red ink” means (it means debt). To freshen this oldie up I added some coronavirus balls to the drowning bear in the red-ink red-stripe.

Back in the old days, California was drowning in red ink because of unfunded pension obligations and poor financial decisions by our irresponsible elected officials; the good old days. I exaggerate so much in my cartoons that my drawings for mildly bad times seem just as appropriate when times are much worse –there’s a cartoon “silver-lining” that we can all be grateful for.

See more of my favorite California Bear cartoons here.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – June 20, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (June 13-20, 2020). Again this week, no drawings of President Trump are among the most reprinted cartoons. Drawing Trump seems to poison a cartoon with editors, limiting reprints.

John Bolton’s sensational new book ripping Trump dominated the news and generated many cartoons, but none of those cartoons were popular with editors and none made the Top Ten. There were no popular cartoons about Trump’s controversial rally in Tulsa. Only one of many cartoons about the Supreme Court’s landmark civil rights decision made the Top Ten. Foreign issues and foreign cartoonists were ignored by editors again this week. Fathers Day is usually popular with editors, but not this year with few cartoons drawn on the topic and only Gary McCoy’s defund the police/Fathers Day cartoon making the list at #10.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 63 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. 20% of the cartoonists, and 20% of the cartoons, get 80% of the reprints. Editors think alike. Most of the cartoons in our flow get few or no reprints. The most popular cartoons dominate.

Congrats to Bob Englehart for drawing the most reprinted cartoon this week! Kudos to Dave Whamond for placing two cartoons in the Top Ten! And congratulations to the rest of the cartoonists who drew the most reprinted cartoons this week: Dave Granlund, Chris Weyant, Rick McKee, Dave Fitzsimmons, Jeff Koterba, Adam Zyglis and Gary McCoy. Great work, gentlemen!

My Favorite Cartoonist/Journalist!

I’d like to introduce everyone to my brilliant cartoonist/journalist daughter, Susie Cagle. Unlike the cartoons that everyone is used to seeing on Cagle.com, Susie’s work is non-fiction; she does original reporting in cartoons.

Cartoon journalism is still pretty rare, but it is very effective, especially for making dry topics more interesting and adding some feeling and humanity to stories where text falls flat. And as photojournalism has been made more difficult in our current strange circumstances, cartoon journalism works even when access is difficult. I’d love to see publishers embrace more reporting through cartoons.

Susie freelances from her home in Oakland, California for many major publishers. Here are links to more reporting gems that Susie did for The Nation, WNYC in New York, The Guardian newspaper and another one for The Nation. She’s busy while she’s sheltering in place and I’m delighted to write that she’s expecting a baby boy in November, who will be my first grandchild.

Susie is hoping to earn support from fans on her Patreon page! I encourage everyone to take a look, to see what’s new from Susie and support cartoon journalism! Look below for three excellent, pandemic cartoon interviews that Susie did recently for The Guardian newspaper and visit Susie’s Patreon page to see more.

Support Susie and see more of her work.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – June 6, 2020

Here are the ten most popular cartoons of the week (May 30 -June 6, 2020). Our Top Ten is a measure of how many of our subscribing newspaper editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 63 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

There is a disconnect between what cartoonists want to draw, what editors want to print, and what readers want to see; this week that divide was plain to see again as there were no cartoons about President Trump in the Top Ten.  Cartoonists focused on Trump’s violent crowd clearing and Bible thumping, church photo op, drawing many great and passionate cartoons criticizing the president this week, but that is not what newspaper editors wanted.

Getting cartoons in front of readers is one of the goals of every cartoonist. Regrettably, many of our cartoonists get few or no reprints, especially the foreign cartoonists. 20% of the cartoonists get 80% of the sales and reprints, and most of the cartoonists never make it into the Top Ten.

Congratulations to Jeff Koterba of The Omaha World-Herald for the #1 most reprinted cartoon this week. Dave Granlund was a close second. Congrats also go to Dave Fitzsimmons of The Arizona Daily Star, and Bruce Plante of The Tulsa World, who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten. I was happy to see Milt Priggee make his first appearance in the Top Ten this week. Kudos also go to the rest of the artists with the most reprinted cartoons: Rick McKee, John Cole, and Dave Whamond.

Milt Priggee has the 9th most popular cartoon.

Can’t Get Away From Coronavirus

We had cartoons about nothing but the coronavirus for months and this week the cartoons abruptly changed to the George Floyd protests. Today I went back to the coronavirus with a silly cartoon that expresses no opinion, like newspaper editors prefer.

I drew a sad couple at the TV yesterday. A goofy TV couple is more typical for me. This nice gag came from a comment on my wife’s Facebook page, so, thanks to whoever wrote that.

Even with the protests, some cartoonists managed to sneak the coronavirus in. Here are five nice ones from our Cagle Cartoonists …

The Most Popular Cartoons of the Month, May 2020

Here are the most popular cartoons of the month of May, 2020. Regular readers of my blog and newsletter will have seen all of these cartoons in our weekly roundups of the Top Ten Most Popular cartoons. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many of our subscribing newspaper editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 63 cartoonists in our syndication package. The list clearly shows that newspaper editors have been looking for cartoons about the lighter side of the pandemic.

I’d like to keep these lists to only ten cartoons, but this month we had a three way tie for the 10th place cartoon so there are 12 cartoons on the list. Out of the top 12, a whopping five cartoons are by Jeff Koterba of The Omaha World-Herald (Jeff sneaked two of those into the tie for 10th place). The #1 cartoon is by Steve Sack of The Minneapolis Star-Tribune. I had two cartoons on the list myself. Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this month, RJ Matson, Nate Beeler, Dave Granlund and Randy Enos.

20% of the cartoonists get 80% of the sales and reprints, and most of the cartoonists never make it into the Top Ten.  If you don’t like the Top Ten, take it up with your local newspaper editor. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.

Protests, Riots and Police!

This is the cartoon I drew today about the nationwide protests …

Police violence is contemptible, but police are protecting our burning cities across America – the contradictions are showing up in cartoons as the cartoonists respond to the ugly scenes on television by drawing.

Here’s a cartoon I reposted for newspapers this morning. I drew this one five years ago for the Ferguson riots/protests. Regrettably, this cartoon doesn’t go out of date. Perhaps five years ago police seemed more concerned about being caught on video.

Since this is all happening on the weekend, and cartoonists and newspapers work on weekdays, we don’t have many cartoons yet. Watch Cagle.com where we’re collecting them all.

Here are my favorites from today …

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, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!
