Gamestop Clubbing

I still had my Thin Blue Line flag clubbing cartoon from last week on my mind when I heard the new reports about Reddit and Gamestop. Droves of Reddit users coordinated to drive up the stock price of Gamestop, a poorly performing, video game, brick and mortar store chain. Big Wall Street hedge funds had been “short selling” Gamestop, such that when Reddit users pushed the stock price up, the short sellers had to pay for most of the hugely inflated price of Gamestop, and the big Wall Street hedge funds took a nasty hit.

That’s the Reddit Robot on the right, with extended arms to weild the Gamestop club.

I put a label on the Wall Street pig – sorry about that, I know labels are for cartoonist sissies, but I didn’t want to draw Wall Street as a bull this time around.

Yes, I know Wall Street has three fingers and one thumb on one hand, and four fingers on the other hand, but a thumb is really another finger if you take a broader view, so he has four fingers on each hand. As it should be with Wall Street pigs.


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.

Split Congress and Sinking Oil Prices

Here’s one I drew a week ago that I forgot to post here! The Democrats have the House and the Republicans have the Senate – I look forward to seeing divided government at work again!

I’m impressed by how quickly oil prices are plummeting, and pulling down that stock market. The cartoon below was an oldie that I drew the last time this happened. There isn’t much news that is truly new news. The same old news seems to happen over and over, so sometimes I dust off an appropriate oldie.

This one needed to be in a vertical format, something that makes editorial cartoons sink. Editors like to leave a standard sized wide box as the editorial cartoon hole to fill each day, so deviating from the standard 1.5 wide by 1 tall box means a cartoon doesn’t get much ink.

But, sometimes I need to break out of the box. I hate being stuck in a box!

Brexit and the Stock Market Crash – Ouch!

I skipped doing a video on this one as I’m packing everything up for my move back to California!

1132-EUbull500dpiCMYK500Stars signify pain in cartoons, so the Brexit bonk on the head to the stock market bull seemed appropriate. I put a bunch of texture in this one. Maybe someone will print it big.

I’m outta here for a while, driving my car from Nashville to California, and doing some sightseeing on the way – so, sorry, but the cartoons should resume in a couple of weeks.

Sinking Oil Prices Sink Wall Street!

The stock market continued its dive this week. My last cartoon showed the impending doom of the falling Chinese economy, now the falling oil prices are blamed for the latest stock market dump.

I drew this one as a live stream on YouTube and Twitch – want to watch me draw it in real time? Here it is on YouTube …

I’m often asked to show how I color my cartoons, so I did a live stream of coloring this one. Want to watch?  Here it is!

China’s Stock Market Crashes Down on Wall Street

The stock market took the biggest fall in many years last week as Chinese stocks continued their free fall. I drew this one yesterday as a live stream – well worth an hour and a half of your time to watch the entire drawing unfold in real time below!

I do the Photoshop coloring after I finish the drawing in the video, which is a little unfortunate because it would be nice to see the final art at the end of the video – but the scanning, cleaning up the scan and coloring is pretty boring. Here’s the final art …

My Debt Ceiling Cartoons

So President Obama and Republicans finally came to an agreement on extending the debt ceiling. Too bad all their bickering created more problems then it solved…

Many liberals are mad at the President for essentially giving Republicans 98 percent of what they wanted. His posture certainly has changed since entering office…

The stock market plummeted after Standard and Poor’s reduced the country’s AAA rating for the first time in our history. Many have questioned S&P’s integrity, especially since the other two ratings agencies have reaffirmed our AAA rating, but that seems besides the point…

As the stock market plummets, our representatives in Washington scramble to blame each other instead of working together to fix the problem. So much for leadership…
