I had three ideas yesterday and I didn’t hate all of them which is rare. This was favorite because I just thought it was stronger, funnier and had more potential to get me in trouble. I like those kind of ideas.
What’s really cool is that I liked the art a lot the day after which is also rare. Usually when I go to editorialcartoonists.com and see it with the other professional cartoons of the day I’m usually thinking “oh God, I drew crap!”. I think it’s the bricks. The bricks just worked out for me. I did have to change the talking insurgent in the toon as he looked like he was wearing a burqa before I fixed it.
Here’s the rough.
I changed the text around in the speech balloon and transferred most of it to the newspaper.
More news from C’ville.
This is about the college cartoon at the Cavalier Daily that ignited a raging inferno of upsetness. C-Ville something or other…it’s a weekly paper for Charlottesville, ran a story quoting some cartoonists about the offensive cartoon and a few others. They actually post a copy of the Ethiopian Food Fight cartoon. You decide if it’s funny.
Which topics should I draw for tomorrow’s paper. There’s a slew of stuff out there. Pick from these or add a topic.
Tasered at Kerry event (that just sounds funny).
Hillary and Health Care (that’s not as funny).
Crocs (a shoe cartoon. Yay).
Frawley pleads guilty.
C’mon, people. Post comments. Don’t make me come down there.
