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!

Trump vs. California

My blue, home state of California has taken the lead in pushing back against President Trump, from dozens of lawsuits to legislation about taxes, the environment and immigration among many other things. Trump doesn’t like push-back and California’s “sanctuary cities” really make Trump mad – that’s why I drew that face-off.

California Fires

The fires around me in Southern California are terrible this week. The skies are brown, the ash falls like snow, and the firemen are heroes. Here’s my California flag cartoon on the firefighters.

There’s lots of frightening stuff going on outside! Stay safe!

More Leaky Trump!

Leaks are still a big White House story – so here’s my second “leaky Trump” cartoon. I drew this live on Twitch.tv/darylcagle and a chatting fan suggested that I should make the tap out of gold. It is true, Trump would have a golden tap.

See me draw the Trump Tap cartoon in real time, in the video below.

I colored this one with Photoshop in the same session as the previous leaking Trump cartoon. Take a look in the video below …

Who is to Blame for Flint’s Poisoned Water?

I enjoyed drawing this Flint Michigan cartoon on Twitch. Take a look at the video below where I explain about the cartoon and answer plenty of questions.

Who is to blame? The Republican, Rick Snyder administration in Michigan wants to shift the blame to the EPA and Obama administration, and it looks like the EPA fell plenty short on this one, but I lay the blame on the Michigan governor and the lousy, unelected administrator he appointed to make all of the bad decisions in Flint.

Sit back and spend the afternoon watching me draw this in real time in the videos below!

And here’s part two …

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!
