North Carolina Bathroom Bill Lawsuit

As ugly as the North Carolina Bathroom bill is, I welcome the departure from Trump/Hillary cartoons. I worried a bit that showing the Statue of Liberty’s butt would be too rude for editors to stomach, but there is something about her being entirely green that seems to make her statuesque butt not seem to stand out as quite so rude. I know editors don’t like bare butts, and cartoons with butts don’t get printed much – still, as a cartoonist it is my responsibility to draw bare butts when the news compels me to do so. Here’s today’s cartoon …

You can watch me draw this one in real time in the video below. There were thunderstorms in Nashville that played havoc with my Twitch feed, so I wasn’t getting many comments from fans and I didn’t have much to say. Perhaps this is a good one to watch at double speed with no sound.

The next YouTube video shows me coloring the cartoon in Photoshop …


North Carolina’s Gay Marriage Ban

Today voters in North Carolina’s primary get to decide whether to approve a state constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage and civil unions.

John Cole, the teriffic staff cartoonist for the Scranton Times-Tribune, spent years drawing cartoons about North Carolina’s wacky political scene for the Durham Herald-Sun. Even though he moved to Pennsylvania, he still draws a cartoon a week for North Carolina Policy Watch. He’s drawn several cartoons about Amendment One, so I asked him to weigh in with this thoughts:

North Carolina always had this feel about it that’s different from a lot of other Southern states. It combined forward-thinking progressivism (exemplified by guys like Jim Hunt, Terry Sanford and Bill Friday), a booming modern high-tech-based knowledge economy and the more traditional social conservatism of pols like Jesse Helms. These things more or less held each other in balance for years. Amendment One upsets that balance and represents a huge step backward for a state that I’ve generally regarded as more open toward and tolerant of differing views and lifestyles.

Here are John’s cartoons about the potential Gay Marriage ban in North Carolina. What do you think – right move or drastic overstep? Comment below or give us your thoughts on our Facebook page.
