Happy New Year!

Here’s my New Years cartoon. I think Trump is pretty likely to be re-elected, and this is my way of drawing that.

Sorry about that. I realized this might be seen as a very pro-Trump cartoon, and I put it in our “Trump Friendly” cartoons section, where I seldom appear.

Here are some of my favorite New Years 2020 cartoons from our CagleCartoonists. This one with, Trumpy leaders from around the world, is by Dutch cartoonist Jos Collignon.

I thought this factories and trees New Years cartoon by Arend van Dam was cute …

This one is from our worried, Canadian CagleCartoonist, Dave Whamond

These last two are by our optimistic, photo-realistic cartoonist, Bart van Leeuwen. Trump is good for lots of fireworks.

CagleCartoonists Meet in France

Every year, CagleCartoonists get together at the big editorial cartoons (they call them “Press Cartoons”) convention in St Just le Martel, France. The small village has dedicated itself to our art form, building a grand cartoon museum and hosting a great party for us. The museum is run by local volunteers; the townsfolk put most of the cartoonists up in their homes and they cook for us, and give us an open bar, and the teenagers in town are our waiters! I can’t imagine anything like that happening in the USA.

It is a delight to visit St Just and see our profession held in such high esteem.  Because of the generosity and support of the village, it is actually cheaper for the cartoonists to come to the convention in St Just than to go to our own, American cartoonist conventions.

This year we had 17 CagleCartoonists from around the world at St Just –you can see 14 of them in the group photo above. That’s our bovine Statue of Liberty looking us over, in the cartoon museum, at our “Trump: Nine Months Later” exhibit.

Our own Angel Boligan went home with the cow –the big annual prize in St Just. Congratulations to Angel!

The CagleCartoonists above are, from left to right: Manny Francisco (Singapore), Angel Boligan (Mexico), Christina Sampaio (Portugal), Pierre Balouhey (France), Pat Bagley (Utah), Gatis Šļūka (Latvia), Steve Sack (Minnesota), Osmani Simanca (Brazil), Monte Wolverton (Washington), Bill Schorr (California); Ed Wexler (California); Jeff Koterba (Nebraska) and Emad Hajjaj (Jordan). I’m seated in the front. Missing from our group photo (and probably hiding in the museum’s bathroom) are Rainer Hachfeld (Germany), Jos Colignon (Holland), and Christo Komarnitski (Bulgaria).
