Let’s dive into the roughs from the week before.
I drew this rough on a Thursday or a Friday and CNN picked it for the weekly newsletter.
It’s a good example of how something starts and is pitched with little to no art…then blooms into this.
I almost drew something else, but late in the morning (like around 6:00 A.M.), I decided a cow in a suit was too funny not to draw.
And it became this.
Now that I’ve done this cartoon, I’m not that in love with it anymore. But I liked it at the time and drew the actual cartoon for it.
I spent a long time on Michael Flynn’s nose. I think I’m going to make cheeseburgers tonight.
Looking back at this one, I don’t even know where I was going with it. Oh yeah…someone in the White House tested positive. I drew this idea…and then the story progressed and gave me better ideas. I think this bloomed into the Michael Flynn hamberder idea. So this wasn’t in front of me for long.
I may come back and draw this one. One of my proofreaders really liked it.
I liked this one well enough and thought I should draw it for several reasons. First, Trump is not in it. Second, it was an important issue which is unemployment and I was able to mesh it with another issue. Third, I thought it was something all my clients would use. But there was one weakness.
It didn’t feature a cow in a suit. This is where I stopped working on it when I finally stopped second-guessing myself and went with the suit cow.
Which cartoons are your favorites?
But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performing busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive. You can also order a signed print for $40. And if you don’t like the PayPal option, you can snail mail it to my P.O. Box.
Watch me draw.
