Friday's syndicate cartoon

It's Friday morning. The last day of September, and it's being reported that his position has changed overnight from "definitely no" to "definitely maybe."

SketchUp Sketch

We had a small crowd last night at SketchUp, so I decided to work in my Moleskine from a gesture drawing I did last Sunday. Still not sure why I am interested in combining figurative and landscape elements, but I'll keep doing it until I get bored. Wanted to take a second to welcome the latest follower to the blog. Hello Mac Attack from Ireland!

Thursday's cartoon

Wanted to get this one in today. Friday's gonna be a busy one, so here it is. I'm still working on my Rick Perry caricature, but I'm starting to enjoy drawing him. He's the perfect politician for caricature: big hair, big suit, and big eyebrows. Evidently he also has a big appetite for campaign contributions. I heard an interesting quote from a Texas newspaper man this morning. He said that if you want to report on Rick Perry, just follow the money.

On a separate note, I found out from my good buddy and fellow cartoonist Jeff Parker that my Pony Express cartoon was in The Tallahassee Democrat on Monday. Check back a few posts to see it.

Today's syndicate cartoon

I was pleasantly surprised that this made it through the Syndicate screen. Would love it if it got picked up by a major publication, but alas, editors are scared to death of the dreaded butt crack.

Sunday Sketch Sept. 18

Oops! Forgot to post this one yesterday. I attended the weekly figure drawing session at our local community college on Sunday. It was fun getting back to figure drawing again. This model can really hold a pose too, so I got several pretty decent studies completed. I'm pressed for time today, so I'll only post one. I actually finished out a Moleskine yesterday. Time to reorder!

Today's syndicate toon

It's been a busy morning, and I can already tell it's gonna be a sprint to the finish today. Here's the first of two cartoons.

Another local cartoon

I was sitting in my studio on Monday, trying to come up with something on the smoke from the forest fires here in Northeast Florida. It has been bad. You can't even go outside in the morning without smelling that horrible, ashy smell. Not to mention the effect on allergy sufferers (like myself). Well, as I was sketching out thumbnails, I noticed that the smell was coming in through the air conditioning ducts. Great! Now we all have to live like the bubble boy.

Dumbing down our kids

My take on the whole "Sponge Bob is too much for young minds" controversy. Once again we over-protect, and dumb down the creative and critical thinking of our kids. Poor 'ol Sponge Bob.

Giddy Up!

My take on the demise of the Postal Service. I've done others, but I think this one might be my favorite. Anytime I can work a talking animal into one of my cartoons, I'm stoked.

Another syndicate cartoon

I was thinking about how the group of GOP presidential candidates is trashing the ideals that Republicans have always stood for. My Dad liked to call himself a Goldwater Republican, and there's probably a little bit of that in me. I doubt most people today would even know who Barry Goldwater was, much less his convictions. Sad. It was also really weird seeing them debate each other at the Ronald Reagan library. I love how they hold Reagan up as an ideal, and then preach from platforms so far removed from the Gipper. Anyway, this led to this image of the poor, tired elephant waiting to be seen by all of those who would want to "doctor" the party.

Here's a pretty good editorial on the subject:

Lessons learned, not.

I wanted to get this one in before the 9/11 anniversary and Obama's Thursday speech. It's a damn shame that lawmakers only seem to focus on what's good for themselves politically instead of what might actually be good for the Country.
