Trump’s Church Photo Op

We just witnessed a crazy scene where Trump had peaceful protesters next to the White House, in Lafayette Park, forcibly cleared out by police, teargas, horses and troops –so that Trump could have a photo op, holding up a bible in front of a church. There had been an arson fire in their bathroom of the boarded-up church that was likely caused by thugs during an earlier protest. Trump a bible up, upside down, as he stood in front of the church, inspiring the cartoonists.  I’ve posted the best of the church photo op, from twelve Cagle Cartoonists; come take a look …

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 Regrettably, this cartoon doesn’t go out of date.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 …

Peace in Gaza

The “peaceful” protests in Gaza have been quite dramatic, with both sides blaming each other for the violence. I thought it would be interesting to draw the peaceful protesters as doves of peace. Those are olive branches in their mouths.

My personal view is that there is no solution to the Israel/Palestinian issue. Someday soon we may look back on these ugly times as the good old days. If I could play God and impose my own peace plan, it would be to force everyone to give up their religion.

When I started this I thought I would draw all of the doves with no pants, Donald Duck style, with bird legs and feet. The problem is that birds have knees that go backwards and it was difficult to put them into the action poses without suffering some strange compromises, so I went with a different compromise: human knees, feet, pants and shoes, and birdie hands on the ends of their wings.

Cartoons about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict often invite angry email. I’ve drawn militant doves before –here’s one that got me lots of angry email …


The angry mail for this one came from Israel supporters who thought the cartoon was anti-semitic because they thought the helmet on the Israeli soldier looked like a German Nazi helmet; they also objected to the Star of David on the helmet, arguing that it signified Jews rather than the complete Israeli flag with stripes, signifying Israel.

Cartoons about the conflict don’t please anybody and are among the least reprinted cartoons –but cartoonists don’t get to choose the news.

The National Conversation About Race

We have a great collection of cartoons about the Grand Jury decision not to indict policeman, Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri – come take a look!

Here’s the rough sketch for my “National Conversation About Race” cartoon.

Sketch600wide

I draw pretty quick and messy in pencil on 11″x17″ tab size paper. Then I trace it neatly for the line art which most people see in the newspaper.

And here’s the color version for the Web and newspapers that print in color.

Somehow I think we’ll be drawing cartoons on this topic for quite some time.

Here is how the cartoon looks this morning in my local newspaper, the Santa Barbara News-Press.

So dark! I anticipate that all of my cartoons will darken when printed, but somehow I’m always surprised by how dark they get.
