Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending April 11rd, 2021.

Congrats to Bob Englehart who has the #1 cartoon. Congratulations to Dick Wright who had his best performance since joining CagleCartoons with the #4 and #5 cartoons. Also congrats to Dave Granlund who has two cartoons in the Top Ten.

And kudos the other cartoonists who had most reprinted cartoons last week, Pat Bagley, Steve Sack, Jeff Koterba, Dave Fitzsimmons and John Darkow.

Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com. These are the cartoons that editors picked last week.

Dragging the GOP and My Photoshop Recipe

Here’s my new cartoon, with President Biden dragging the GOP doggie to places where it doesn’t want to go.

I get lots of questions from cartoonists about how I recommend that they prepare their cartoons for syndication. Here is the “recipe” we give to our CagleCartoonists. Some new CagleCartoonists are old timers without computer skills, so the recipe is very detailed about little details that are self evident to the tech savvy.

First, I do a line drawing on paper in pencil or ink and I scan it. It isn’t important that it is on paper; drawing it electronically is fine, the important thing is that it is line art. This recipe is for coloring traditional cartoons with black lines.  The point of this is so that the lines remain clean and crispy black, and don’t spread with the poor registration we often see in newspaper printing.

So, scan the art at highest resolution in Grayscale – the higher the better, usually scanners do 600dpi.  Open the art in Photoshop, straighten the angle if necessary (IMAGE > Image Rotation), draw a marquee rectangle precisely around the art, just where you want it cropped, and EDIT > Copy (Command C), open a new document, which will open at the size of the copied art, and EDIT > Paste (Command V).

Go to IMAGE > Image Size, deselect “Constrain Proportions”, select 1000 pixels/inch, Width 8 inches, Height 6 inches – or vary the height a bit if the art is a different proportion, 4”x3” is good. Click OK

Why 4 x 3? Because newspaper leave a wide rectangle as the hole for editorial cartoons, and if cartoons are square or tall, almost no newspapers will print them. This is frustrating for gag cartoonists, and others who like a taller format that works better on the Web. Cartoonists who fight the wide rectangle just don’t get reprinted in newspapers.

Go to IMAGE > Brightness/Contrast, turn the contrast to 100% and adjust the brightness to what looks nice. Repeat if necessary. Make it a little darker than you think is necessary because it will lighten up in the next step. Click OK

GO to IMAGE > Mode > Bitmap, with method “50% Threshold” – if it is too light, UNDO the transformation to Bitmap and repeat the last step on the Grayscale image, making the image a bit darker/denser with the Brightness, then select “Bitmap” again.You’ll get something like this:

Clean up any hickies and make any changes in Photoshop with the brush and lasso tools.

Save as a TIFF format file with LZW compression. The file should be around 2 megs in size.

Then go on to color …

Take the bitmap/line art image we just made, go to the IMAGE menu and change to: GRAYSCALE, then go to the IMAGE menu again and change to CMYK.

Open the Layers Window from the WINDOWS menu. Add about 20 transparent background layers (Command Shift N, twenty times), drag the line art image to the top layer

Select the top layer and select the black line color with the eyedropper tool. Then go to the SELECT menu and select COLOR RANGE, selecting only the black lines, then select the “black” foreground color in the tools menu and make the black: 0%C, 0%M, 0%Y, 100%K, then select the EDIT menu and choose FILL.

With the top layer still selected, go to the SELECT menu and choose INVERSE, selecting the white areas, and delete – it should show a checkerboard pattern meaning the background is transparent and nothing is there. Select MULTIPLY from the drop menu at the top of the Layers window, this makes the color in the layers underneath the black lines print under the black lines so there is no haloing in printing. What this does is print the color under the back lines, so there is no “haloing” with bad registration.

Select the bottom layer from the LAYERS window, Select ALL (Command A), Go to the Tools window and select the foreground color and make it 0%C, 0%M, 0%Y, 0%K (white) and select FILL from the EDIT menu.

Then add colors on the layers in between to your taste. Label layers as you go to make them easy to find and group similar colors together. Save a copy at 1000dpi for your personal files as a CMYK TIFF with LZW compression as a copy with no layers. Go to the IMAGE menu and select IMAGE SIZE and resize the image to 500dpi. Save as the file to upload to CagleCartoons.com as a TIFF file with LZW compression and no layers – the file should be about 6megs in size.  You’ll end up with something like this.

Why CMYK? Most clients prefer RGB, which is best for the Web; they get photos in RGB format, and RGB files are smaller. But this recipe lets us have clean, crispy 100% black lines and if a printer can use a CMYK file, then CMYK is superior. In our system, editors have a choice of downloading the files as RGB, but they can only download CMYK if the file is originally created in CMYK.

In our system we have a 6.5 meg file size limit – that is because we often email cartoons and we don’t want the emails to be too big. We ask artists to make the images no smaller than 4,000 pixels wide. As a last step, reduce the resolution of the image so that it comes in under 6.5megs, and is 4,000 pixels wide. You should be able to come up with a TIFF file with LZW compression that is about 6 megs in size. Remember flatten the image so it isn’t huge with layers – but first, while you have layers …

Make a grayscale version …

We ask artists to make a grayscale version. Most newspapers still print in black and white, and it is nice to be able to control the contrast. When editors go to our site and select a cartoon they want in color, it brings up a preview page where they have a choice of a grayscale version. If the artist doesn’t prepare the grayscale version, our system creates it from the color cartoon, and that isn’t as nice. We also deliver grayscale cartoons by email to newspaper who want that. Better to control this and tweak a grayscale version.

Save Image with a new name. Select from the IMAGE menu: MODE: Grayscale. Adjust the Brightness and Contrast of the layers to taste.

Select FLATTEN IMAGE from the Layers window and save as a TIFF with LZW Compression – or save as a TIFF LZW compression copy with no layers and skip this step.

Why TIFF format? Because it is “non-lossy” and images should be saved in the best quality. Most artists prefer to save files in JPG format, and most newspapers prefer JPG formal also, since they get photos in that format. When editors download cartoons in our system they have a choice of JPG or TIFF. Saving an image as a 12 quality JPG isn’t “lossy,” but it may be bigger than a TIFF.

The grayscale file should be about 3 megs in size, and looks something like this …

I know I overexplained this, but the questions I get from artists are pretty granular.  I’m afraid I can’t really overexplain it.  I’ll bookmark this page and give it to cartoonists everytime this comes up.

The cartoonists push back against being asked for higher resolution that they want to do. They push back against TIFF format, and CMYK. They push back against the wide rectangle format. Especially the international cartoonists. It never ends.

This comes up all the time.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – February 27, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending February 27th.

Here are the weekly Top Ten cartoons. Congratulations to John Darkow who won the week with the #1 and #8 cartoons. And kudos to  Jeff Koterba and Dave Fitzsimmons who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten. And congrats to Kevin Siers, Nate Beeler and Gary McCoy!

Six of the cartoons reference the pandemic. There are two cartoons depicting Joe Biden – which doesn’t seem to push editors away like Trump cartoons did.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of January, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last month, January, 2021.  We usually do the Top Ten of the Week, but this week our stats were down for a couple of days as were were working on new programming. The weekly Top Ten will be back next Saturday.

January was a wild month with the pandemic, the presidential inauguration and the Capitol insurrection. New Years, Martin Luther King and GameStop also made the list.

This was an impressive month for Steve Sack, who had a strong #1 and and also scored in 6th place.  Dave Granlund also kicked cartoon butt with three cartoons on the list (#2, #5 and #9). Dave Whamond (#7 and #10) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #4) each had two cartoons on the list. Kudos to Dave Fitzsimmons who had the #8 cartoon.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 30, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 23rd through January 30th 2021).

This was an impressive week for Steve Sack, who outpaced the pack and dominated the week with the #1, #2 and #7 most reprinted cartoons of the week. Congratulations to Dave Whamond and Dave Granlund who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Ten this week: Monte Wolverton, Bob Englehart and Bruce Plante.

There were three drawings of the president on the list this week – I can’t remember the last time that happened. We’re used to seeing editors shy away from drawing the president – but that was a different president.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 23, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 16th through January 23th 2021).

We have a tie for 10th place so the Top Ten is the Top Eleven this week. This was inauguration week and the presidential transition dominated the news and the cartoons.

Dave Granlund‘s #1 cartoon got far more reprints than #2 and the rest of the pack. Congratulations, Dave! Dave Whamond, Jeff Koterba and Bill Day also had a fantastic week, each with two cartoons in the Top Eleven.

Kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Eleven list this week: Steve Sack, Bruce Plante, Randy Enos and David Fitzsimmons.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 14, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (November 7th through November 14th 2020). This week the editors flocked to the same cartoons, as usual, with the few, most popular cartoons far outpacing the rest.

This week’s #1 cartoon by Jeff Koterba is the second most reprinted editorial cartoon of the year, and it may yet overtake Dave Granlund’s #1 cartoon of the year so far, from three weeks ago. The #2 cartoon by Dave Whamond would have been a strong #1 in a typical week where the usage curve wasn’t quite so steep.

Dave Whamond and Dave Granlund both impress with two cartoons each on the Top Ten. Hearty congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week, Dave Fitzsimmons, Pat Byrnes, Monte Wolverton, Randy Enos and Gary McCoy

The most popular topic this week was Alex Trebek. Only two cartoons referencing the pandemic made the Top Ten list.  Cartoonists drew scores of cartoons about Trump’s refusal to accept the election results this week, but only three were popular with editors who ignored most of these cartoons.

#1

Jeff Koterba‘s #1 cartoon was the most reprinted cartoon of the week by far.

 

#2

Dave Whamond has the first of three Alex Trebek obit cartoons in the Top Ten. Editors seem to love cartoons that marvel at what a bad year 2020 is.

 

#3

Dave Whamond also nabs third place. In a week where Trump’s refusal to accept the election results dominated the news, few cartoons on the topic were popular with newspaper editors.

 

#4

Dave Fitzsimmons takes 4th place with the second Alex Trebek cartoon on the list.

 

#5

Dave Granlund takes fifth place with the third Alex Trebek obit cartoon.

 

#6

Dave Granlund also takes 6th place.

 

#7

Pat Byrnes nabs 7th place.

 

#8

Monte Wolverton takes 8th place.

 

#9

Randy Enos nabs 9th place with this nice pandemic cartoon.

 

#10

Gary McCoy wraps up the Top Ten with this Veterans Day cartoon. In other years, Veterans Day got more attention from both editors and cartoonists.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – November 7, 2020

This was a crazy election week! Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (October 31st through November 7th 2020). Newspaper editors found lots of cartoons they liked this week and the usage curve was flattened. Many cartoons were bunched together in the stats, with each getting lots of reprints – very different from recent weeks when editors all reprinted the same, few cartoons. Editors found a lot to like this week.

We have a crazy, improbable, four way tie for first place, with each first place cartoon getting about half as many reprints as last week’s #1 cartoon. Every Top Ten cartoon this week was about the election but, as usual, none of the most reprinted cartoons included drawings of Trump or Biden.  This is the first week for many months where no coronavirus cartoons made the Top Ten.

Congrats to Jeff Koterba who has two cartoons on the list, including one cartoon tied for #1. Two of my own cartoons tied for #1. Kudos to Rick McKee who also shares the four-way tie for #1 this week.

I was pleased to see our new CagleCartoonist, Pat Byrnes, made the Top Ten list this week. Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: RJ Matson, Dave Granlund, John Darkow and Pat Bagley.

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
