Ahhh, Orwell. I think he is perhaps my favorite writer. Beyond "1984" and "Animal Farm" his best works are certainly his essays. A new collection has just re-published classics like "Shooting an Elephant" and "A Hanging." If you have the time by all means at least read these two fantastic essays.
After the long election season we now fade into the holidays and our cultural amnesia sets in. The collective memory fades into the dark months of winter leaving an empty void. Who was elected? What was that about? Change? George W. who? Economy, stupid? Huh? Whadidyasay?

It's the Economy, Stupid Part II

It's getting scarier and scarier out there.....

Here's a quick sketch of Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.

Thank goodness the conventions are over. Yet, we still have to endure another two months of campaigning. Aaaaaaaggggggrrrrrrhhhhh!!!!! I don't know if I'm going to make it. Here's two pretty good cartoons from this week. They were both picked up and ran in the New York Times Week In Review on Sunday.

A photo illustration I did for this weekend's Opinion pages following the DNC. In the end the Clinton's came off more gracious than anyone probably ever thought they would.

I don't know why, but I really wish they'd put Dick Cheney on a coin like this. Perhaps so that we might never forget?

Remember the flap about the New Yorker cover by Barry Blitt last month? No? Has your American Amnesia set in already? Before I went on vacation I did this mock cover. I turned off my phone and didn't check my email for a week. Unbeknownst to me the cartoon was picked up and ran in the New York Times Week in Review and the Washington Post!

Thug o' the Month
Third World African Dictator Robert Mugabe gets this months award. Mr. Mugabe's destruction of Zimbabwe has lasted nearly 30 years and in a recent election he literally BEAT the opposition. A campaign of fear and intimidation forced his opponent to withdraw from the election. Now it would seem efforts to challenge his iron-fisted grip on the country have faltered

To me, summer is about watermelon. Nothing tastes quite the same on a hot, steamy July day.

This was a lot of fun and took up the entire page of the Sunday Viewpoint section in the Daily News. I occasionally do these longer narratives and find them quite amusing, albeit it's a ton of work. I had the idea approved on Wednesday, laid it out and finished the dialogue and inking by 4 am Thursday. Spent all day Friday coloring in photoshop. Not a lot of time to do a full page color cartoon. I thought it turned out pretty well and the tomatoes really have my sympathies by the end.

Sunday Business Illustration

Here is a fun drawing I did for the Sunday Business page about taming the beast within your checkbook. With economic times being what they are we all have to deal with our own spending monsters.

Arbitrary Numbers

I think I got most of the administrations slogans in here. I'm thinking about adding some color and turning this one into a T-Shirt. The media like to focus on the numbers, especially body counts, during war time. It's a pretty morbid practice when you think about it. Of course, the Bush/Cheney junta and the Pentagon doesn't want to hype 'arbitrary numbers,' like how many fine young men and women have been killed in our latest imperial adventure.

It's 3 am.....

A recent cartoon referring to the now famous Hillary Clinton ad. Funny the way there always seems to be some kind of a 'break-out' advertisement that captures the public's imagination every election season. Mushroom clouds and little girls, anyone?
