Here's the rough:
And here's the final cartoon. I added more to the rear of the truck and shifted the dog to the back. My friend Clay Jones told me that readers LOVE it when you put a dog in your cartoon, so I'm gonna try to do that every chance I get. I also added the gun rack (typical for a Baker County old timer).

Here's another quick sketch from my sketchbook. This one is of Alberto Gonzales. He was a lot tougher to caricature than I initially thought he was going to be. I finally ended up using a series of overlaping ovals to construct his head, and that allowed me the flexibility I needed to exaggerate his features. For the finished caricature check out the header on my main website: http://www.halltoons.com/

Here's the rough (it changed a little - always does):
And here's the finished cartoon. I think the color really adds to it.
I love the idea of showing Alberto Gonzales as the administration's Organ Grinder Monkey. He's so cute and furry (and does exactly what they tell him to do)!
Anyway, click on the above link and check out some of my latest cartoons. I think I've got a pretty good mix of local and national stuff this time around.

Kucinich hospitalized with apparent food poisoning Associated Press CLEVELAND - Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, who is a vegan, has been hospitalized with "severe" effects of apparent food poisoning. The 60-year-old congressman from Cleveland became sick Sunday night while flying to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to address the national Longshoremen's convention. He went ahead with the speech Monday but immediately returned home and was hospitalized in the Cleveland area. The name of the hospital wasn't disclosed. Andy Juniewicz, a campaign spokesman, said Kucinich was improving Tuesday night and said no medical update was available Wednesday morning. Kucinich, a former Cleveland mayor, typically polls in the low single digits.
This photo was taken last week at the AAEC Convention in DC. Come to think of it, he does look a little sick in this photo, but that could just be him agreeing or disagreeing with one of my cartoons. I just hope it wasn't a stomach flu...wait a minute, I'm feeling a little woozy myself...ooooo...where's the Pepto?

And here's the finished cartoon. Now it's time for a beer and a nap.
Well, here's the second cartoon for today. It didn't change much from the original sketch (as you can probably see). I've been told that people like to see the original sketches, so I'll post them when they're available. Then you can compare and contrast.
