I was asked over the weekend if I’d draw on this issue. A few people were amazed by it and wanted to see me cover it. Here ya’ go! I went through a few other drafts for this cartoon before we went with the final version. The first one I really liked but my editor wasn’t comfortable with it. I had a few drafts after that but none really seemed to do it for me. Finally, I drew this. I liked the first idea the most but this will do. I hate days like that.
I should have moved the kids left leg in a bit more to emphasize the holster. I’m not real happy with the cartoon.
More Global Warming toons
As I said yesterday, every year I see a bunch of cartoons disputing global warming. As soon as the weather turns cold the cartoons show up. I saw one yesterday and posted it (scroll down) and today another popped up which is drawn by Terry Wise.
