TRUE Crazy Stuff 4!

Here’s a new batch of my old TRUE cartoons. This first one is a self-portrait of younger me, sitting on the toilet, talking on my land-line rotary phone. Looking at the old True cartoons makes me feel young again, until I notice details that make me feel old.







Hillary and a Tempest in a Teapot

Here’s my new one. I was trying to stretch this to make a better tea-party reference to the elephant, but I decided, nah, it is clear enough. Then I thought of putting the GOP elephant in a Fox New t-shirt, and I thought, nah, it is clear enough.

Here’s a Hillary, Benghazi, GOP oldie that will probably never grow stale. Hillary is a wonderful character – I’m looking forward to the campaign!

Press Jerk or Bitch?

Here is my newest cartoon, with the media as an abused spouse of our petulant president. I did two versions of this one, with Obama saying “Bitch” for brave editors, and one with Obama saying “Jerk” for timid editors. I hope they will print “Bitch” but I expect that they will choose to print “Jerk.”  Here is the rough sketch.

Editors can be pretty darn timid, and I suspect that both versions of this cartoon might scare them off.

My grouchy editorial cartoonist colleagues, who lambasted me for my two-version Miranda cartoon, will be debating banning two versions of editorial cartoons as “unethical” at our upcoming convention. I must admit that, if some kinds of cartoons are banned, I’ll be motivated to draw them anyway, just to break the rules.

Another thing my colleagues will discuss banning are cartoons that are similar to other cartoons a cartoonist has drawn in the past. This abused press cartoon is similar to an oldie I drew about high gas prices.

It will be interesting to see how the cartoonists plan to enforce their new ethical rules.

The abused spouse gas cartoon generated some angry mail from actual abused spouses who were upset with me for not taking them seriously, in some strong and emotional language.  I actually apologized for this one, since people were so upset.  For any readers I offend with my new cartoon, you again have my apology – it is not my intent to criticize abused spouses – the cartoon is only about Obama and the press!

Cartoon Round-up Ouch Gas prices

Ouch! Gas Prices!

The price of oil came close to the $100 dollar a barrel level recently as gas prices continue to climb. High gas prices are an evergreen theme for political cartoonists. Huge, menacing gas pumps have become a regular cartoon character.

After a while it gets tough. We’ve drawn every possible combination of SUV bashing, oil company logo parody; we drew paying an “arm and a leg” for gas, with actual arms and legs – or paying with your first born; or trading the college education for a tank of gas. Gas pumps are often guns pointed at the comsumers’ head – or nooses.

Just when it seems like every possible gas price gag has been done – we have another round of high gas prices and we’re all back to the drawing board.
