I drew this cartoon for The Costa Rica Star. I draw two cartoons a month for The Star. This was published last Monday. There’s a new one that was published Saturday and I’ll post that one here next weekend.
Lately, I haven’t even discussed issues with the editors at the Star. I read up on local subjects and then I throw ideas at them, from which they approve one. I do a lot of research for every cartoon.
The government announced they were going to spend $52 million on new trains, which sounds like a better idea than building useless border walls. Meanwhile, Pequeno Mundo, a store popular with tourists, was raided by Costa Rica’s police forces on suspicion they were selling knock-off name-brand products. I don’t think the store has actually been charged with anything yet.
I had a big to-do list today despite it being Sunday. I had to invoice my clients, posts these three cartoons, and do a few other chores on the business side of operating your own syndicate. Later tonight, I’ll actually draw a new cartoon for you. I haven’t decided what I’m doing yet.
I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)?
