Roughing It, Volume 30


It’s time to check out a few more rough sketches. There aren’t as many this week as usual (thank god). A couple of these turned into finished cartoons, like our first one.

This one turned into…

…this, which I drew for CNN.

This one didn’t turn into anything.

I kinda liked this one.

This one was a stretch and it’s a good thing I didn’t draw it. It was playing off how they were going on a Saturday and nobody would watch it. I think everyone forgot about that pretty quickly.

This was another version of an idea I had the week before.

This was OK. Not awesome.

This one did turn into something. It turned into the kind of cartoon a lot of newspapers are afraid of.

It turned into this.

I had this idea a week too early. A colleagued reminded me Thursday of Groundhog Day (this Sunday) and I considered doing it. But you know, there’s just too much going on right now to waste a cartoon on something too cutesy. Plus, I wasn’t sure how to word this because the Republican coverup will continue.

  1. If you had used Dumbty in the professional report scene, with his tongue stuck way out amongst the flying papers, I would have loved it. Graham is a hack, nothing more. Two year-old Donny, that is a tantrum.
