I got called on the carpet this weekend for not keeping my blog up. I know, I know, you want to see more cartoons. Well, here's three week's worth. Enjoy! BTW, one of the reasons I hadn't been posting is because Blogger is no longer compatible with Internet Explorer 8. Now that I have upgraded to IE 9 updates should be more frequent. I also took the opportunity to update my blog's template. Hope you like the slick new look. You can now Tweet these or share with your friends on Facebook right at the bottom of each post. Thanks in advance for sharing!
Here are several cartoons from last week. I've been very busy painting in the studio, so I haven't really had a chance to keep up with the blog. Look for some figure sketches in the next post. Cheers, Ed
This was a mother's day gift for a business associate of mine. The dog's name is Murphy, and he's a Wheaten Terrier. Very hairy. Don't forget, you can order your own sketch from me. Just shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a couple of photo's of your dog, and we can discuss pricing. Cheers, Ed
The Los Angeles Times used my tax refund cartoon on Tuesday. It's always a big thrill to be included on their oped page. I love how they run them large & center page, and so much for the theory that the major newpapers never publish vertical cartoons.
If you woke up in Northeast Florida over the past few days, you know that there are numerous forest fires currently burning across our region. The dry conditions are no doubt the result of fewer hurricanes over the past few years. I'm not sure if that's a good trade off or not, but it sure is wrecking havoc on my allergies. A high pollen count, coupled with thick dense smoke does not a happy Ed make.
The second cartoon deals with the looming debt crisis in the student loan industry. With the housing bust and the problems in Europe, this one seems to have been largely over-looked by the media. But it's coming, and it ain't gonna be pretty. Oh, and guess who will end up picking up the bill on all of those defaulted school loans?
