Foreclosure Cartoons

As the U.S. economy limps out of a devastating recession, home foreclosures continue to be a drain on economic growth. Some estimates show that as many as 5 million properties are over 60 days late on their mortgage payments.

While you’re waiting for this latest flood of foreclosures to end, you might as well try to laugh at our Flood of Foreclosures cartoon slideshow.

Love Those Lemmings

Lemmings are an evergreen concept for an editorial cartoons.  Here’s my latest lemming cartoon, about Obama and the Dems pushing for a health care plan.  First, the rough sketch:

Then I do a nice finished line drawing on a overlay, which is what most readers see in the newspaper.

… And then I color it for the web and the minority of newspapers that print political cartoons in color.

Here’s a lemmings cartoon I drew about the housing crisis …

And here’s a lemmings cartoon I drew about college graduates and the job market …

I learned that people love lemmings all around the world -sometimes people love lemmings a little too much.  After I drew the graduation lemmings cartoon, the cartoon was plagiarized by cartoonist Ali al-Ghamdi for a major newspaper in Saudi Arabia, the Alwatan.

Lemmings.  Ouch.
