Sometimes while writing out ideas, a cartoonist warms up by sketching. One of my pals, Stacy Curtis, starts his day with what he calls “Warm Up Drawerings” and he shares them on Facebook. They’re beautiful. My “drawerings” are just really goofy and I don’t always share them.

Yesterday, while writing for CNN, I sketched this out. No, I did not send it to CNN and I wouldn’t have. But I did share it on social media and it got a lot of likes, shares, and comments (most, “MY EYES!!!!”). But I have learned one thing over the past few years and that is, what works really well on Facebook usually doesn’t for print newspapers. But I decided to send it to my clients anyway. There may be one client crazy enough to run it anyway.

But if you don’t follow me on social media (the buttons are on the right-hand side of the page, people), why should you be denied losing your lunch after seeing this?

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.

  1. Is that what all those funny buttons were, doorways to social media?Glad I closed them all permanently years ago! The one with the WP, that one is still open. If you gotta have friends, make them good ones.
