Sorry there wasn’t a blog yesterday. The cartoon intended for yesterday’s paper was spiked at the last minute so there wasn’t time for me to replace it with another original idea.
Here’s today’s toon which is on the same subject as the spiked toon.
This idea was chosen over this one
The reason I chose the “youtube” version of the “wiggle” version was because it was simpler and everyone who saw it liked it better. The wiggle version is a bit tougher which is what I normally wanna do.
Here’s the toon that was killed
This wasn’t killed because of taste or fairness. It was killed because my editor didn’t get it. But I think I draw a decent Douglas Wilder. I also found out (from all the researching) that Jell-0 is the official snack food of Utah. I used to date a girl from Utah and now I really wish I was aware of how much she liked Jell-0.
