I really am not a fan of obituary cartoons to begin with, but I especially despise Heaven and Pearly Gates cartoons, even when I draw them. So, if I can work around it I will.

I love Aretha. She was amazing and definitely the queen of soul. To me, she may have been the queen of music. “Respect” isn’t actually my favorite song of hers. I like “Think” a lot better. Her vocals were always amazing, but I was impressed, even as a kid, with her on that tune. It also helps that I watched the Blues Brothers about a million times.

R.I.P., Aretha.

Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!

Watch me draw.


  1. Chain of Fools is my favourite. It’s the perfect rhythm to dance and vacuum to and I always put her album on when I’m cleaning, helps it go faster. She will be missed, such a fantastic voice.
