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.
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.
