I can’t post the rough to this cartoon because the rough is inside this cartoon. Here’s what happened: I roughed the idea (felt good about the idea) and realized I wasn’t going to capture the spontaneity twice. So, I took a better, darker pen and drew on top of the ball point to thicken things up, even redid the lettering and speech balloon and pasted it onto the drawing paper. Then I shaded around it to give it a bit more life. The original looks like a big gob of gunk. Cartoonists like that.
I’ve been wanting to draw Hillary as a witch for a while but I didn’t have a call for it. Today I felt I did.
Toons on the primary
I haven’t talked about other toons in a while. I fell out of the zone and bored myself with it. In the past couple of days after the Pa Primary I’ve seen a ton of crap (especially any political cartoon with Hillary and Obama boxing). I’m not gonna point out the crap. It’s not often there’s more than one cartoon in a single day that makes me laugh, but today there were a few.
I think Mike Keefe stole this from me even though I never thought of it. It’s my kind of cartoon.
Nick, I’m not posting yours because we talked yesterday. I just think the imagery is hilarious. There’s something kinda disgusting about the tongue though.
I think the analogy is kinda outdated, but I still like Lisa Benson’s toon. Hillary might be in a bikini (c’mon…she’s 60) which is more disgusting than the tongue Nick drew.
