Roughing It, Volume 47


This batch of roughs was drawn while the world was merely going to shit before all the serious racist shit hit.

This rough became this week’s cartoon for the CNN Opinion newsletter.

See?

I liked this idea and it became a real cartoon.

It changed up a bit.

This was drawn after his comments about reopening churches. It’s way too familiar to a cartoon I drew very recently. I think I sketched this out just to warm up.

CNNrough771

Did I read something about Covid test monkeys escaping? That’s just fantastic. Maybe they’ll make a beeline to the White House where last night, it was MAGA night.

This was after Trump said Virginia was threatening the Second Amendment and wouldn’t be able to protect its potatoes. I’ve been living in Virginia for over two decades and I never knew we were a major potato state.

This almost became a real cartoon. Potatoes. My Mr. Potato Head is so disappointed but he did model for this.

CNNrough765

Bleah. Not “bleach.” Bleah as in, sucky idea.

CNNrough764

That is true. Someone did call him “fat.”

CNNrough763

She’s right, you know.

One editor was afraid nobody would be familiar with Flintstones vitamins. I’m afraid that might be true which breaks my heart.

I keep playing with the Zoom ideas yet I haven’t drawn a cartoon with it.

Get it? Because Andrew Jackson was a racist president…Donald Trump is a racist president?. This is my favorite from this batch of ideas that did not turn into official cartoons. It’s subtle, right? Donald Trump is a racist.

Which ideas are your faves?

Tip Jar: This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care of yourself and your family first.

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. 

You can purchase a signed print of this cartoon.

  1. “ Bleah. Not “bleach.” Bleah as in, sucky idea.”

    This would work if Ki45*TF was pouring the whole dang bottle of bleach into the Mailbox while facing a scowling “Woman Of Color” MailPerson sitting in one of those Boxy White Mail Delivery Vans that the Postal Service uses (with the Driver’s Seat on the Right-Hand side… yeah, that’s right… the Post Office gets all of its vehicles from Not-So-Great Britain… Ki45*TF worked out a Sweetheart Deal with Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson [got this from Wikipedia… couldn’t resist it]… Who says Ki45*TF isn’t a great negotiator!).

    Ki45*TF is Saying:
    ”WHAT!… I’M JUST SANITIZING ALL OF THE MAIL FROM THAT COVID-19 VIRUS!”

    … while IT is Thinking:
    ”… AND ‘SANITIZING’ ALL OF THOSE DIRTY ILLEGAL MAIL-IN BALLOTS FROM THOSE VOTES FOR DEMOCRATS”

    PS:
    Instead of the Delivery Van, the MailPerson could just be standing there scowling with a MailBag hanging on her shoulder… yeah, pretty sure they still use those… Fun Fact… in the Summer Of 1966, between High School Graduation and Starting College, I worked for the Post Office as a Summer Substitute Mailman for the Real Mailmen who were on vacation… man, I could tell you stories… anyway, I had a Bag, not a Van.
