Roughing It, Volume 51

I think I drew too many roughs last week. Let’s check them out.

CNNrough809I wasn’t sure if this idea worked. I think I came up with it on a Thursday. I asked my two proofers if they got it. I thought it either works really well or it’s total garbage. Then my CNN editor wanted it. I knew it worked then.


I was very happy with it.


I knew this would work well.


And it made Politico. I changed it from Trump to a GOP elephant because I didn’t think I had enough creative license to draw Trump praying.


I knew this would work too and it’d be popular with my readers.


I was right.


Yeah, this one wasn’t very good.


As it turns out, the wrong racist symbol for Trump.


Now that I see this again, I really don’t like it.


I did like this one.


This was OK but I’m so tired of the Klansmen…and they keep coming up.


I have another idea with this concept I may end up drawing.


I like this one. It may come back.


I did this one on Trump wanting a retraction and apology from CNN because he didn’t like a poll they conducted.


I was all set to draw this one, then something else happened. Since this was two weeks ago, I don’t remember what it was.


I saved this one for last because an apology has to come with it. Hilary, one of my excellent proofreaders, loved it and I told her I was going to draw it. I didn’t it. It too was overtaken by another issue. I’m sorry, Hilary.

Unless you’re Hilary, which cartoons are your favorites?

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 performer 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.

Watch me draw.


  1. Under “Tip Jar,” you have “Think of me like a street performing busking out tunes.” I think you meant “performer,’ didn’t you?

  2. “ I was all set to draw this one, then something else happened. Since this was two weeks ago, I don’t remember what it was.”

    Dang, with Ki45*TF And Friends throwing crap at us 24/7/365, I can’t even keep track of what happened yesterday.
