Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending May 1st, 2021.

This is a rare week where I took the #1 spot (Daryl Cagle). Congratulations to Dave Whamond who has three cartoons on the list! And congrats to Jeff Koterba who has two cartoons in the Top Ten! Kudos to the other cartoonists who had the most reprinted cartoons this week: John Cole, Rick McKee, John Darkow and Dick Wright.

Texas COVID Party

Texas Governor Greg Abbot just dropped COVID restrictions on business and masks, at a time when new variants of the virus are threatening a new resurgence. Mississippi too. Some other states dropping restrictions to a lesser degree. Bad timing for public health but it is always good timing for cartoonists.  Here’s mine:

And here are my recent favorites on Texas’ reckless health blunder. This one is by Steve Sack

 

This one is by Rick McKee

 

This one is by Adam Zyglis

Jeff Koterba on Editorial Cartooning

Jeff Koterba is one of the most popular CagleCartoonists! Jeff tells us what’s up with him and shares some of his recent favorites. See Jeff’s archive on Cagle.com here. – Daryl

When my full-time cartooning job at the local newspaper was eliminated a few months ago, I gave myself exactly one day to grieve. I’d been there for over 30 years and while it broke my heart to lose my job, I knew that better things were ahead. The next day, I decided to learn everything I could about Patreon. And, as it turns out, Patreon is not only a blessing for me as a cartoonist, but it’s giving my readers far more interesting and timely content than ever before.

For those not familiar with Patreon, it’s a fresh take on the traditional concept of artists creating work with the support of patrons.

As much as I love poking fun at politicians, I equally enjoy drawing about the things that impact us all very directly…

It’s no secret that newspapers are hurting. But journalism—and, I would argue, editorial cartoons—are now more essential to our democracy than ever. If you see my cartoons published here on Cagle.com or in other publications around the country, it’s thanks to Cagle and to my supporters on Patreon. It’s because of them that I’m able to create several cartoons each week on the topics that impact us all.

If nothing else, Covid inspires a new way to look at age-old situations like dating …

Also, now that I’m free of my local newspaper’s deadline, I’m able to draw cartoons whenever there is a breaking story, publishing the work immediately. Which means content that’s more timely than ever before for you.

And beyond that, I pull back the curtain on my creative process and invite supporters along the way, as I share sketches-in-progress, not to mention time-lapse videos of my process like this one.

I drew this cartoon as I watched live coverage of what was happening in Washington that day…soon after, I followed up with this cartoon.

Plus, there are lots of other perks. I even host an exclusive monthly Zoom show, “Koterba’s Theory of Creativity,” where I chat with guests about the creative process. In fact, my guest for March will be Rick Kirkman, not only one of my supporters on Patreon, but the artist behind the popular comic strip, “Baby Blues.”

I love connecting with my readers and I’d love for you to stop by my page and check it out!

Democracy’s return to flight .
Mostly, I’m inspired by news events. But sometimes, I’m inspired by what I see around me in my daily life. And when I kept seeing discarded masks, I knew there had to be a cartoon in there somewhere …

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 16, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 9nd through January 16th 2021).

The news was dominated by President Trump and continuing fallout from the insurrection at the Capitol, but as usual, no cartoons depicting Trump were popular with editors. Four of the Top Ten cartoons are about the pandemic.

Jeff Koterba had another incredible week taking the #1 and #8 spots. Dave Whamond also had a fantastic week, taking home three prizes for #6, #9 and #10.

Congratulations to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Ten list this week: Kevin Siers, Dave Granlund, John Cole, Randy Enos and Gary McCoy.

The Koterba and Granlund top two cartoons each got about twice as many reprints as the #3 – even so, we’re back to the normal pattern of the Top Ten cartoons dominating all the rest of the cartoons and the top two being extra big hits.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com
