Roughs, Volume 87

All these rough sketches are from the previous week except for the first one. Enjoy, kiddos.


This was my first idea after the Daunte Wright shooting but then I stopped myself knowing another cartoonist would also draw it. I was right. My colleague Jeff Stahler drew it while I was deciding not to.


I was assigned to do something on the vaccine and I struggled.


This is what landed in the newsletter for CNN Opinion last Sunday. I do enjoy drawing cows.


Before I found my cows, I took several stabs (no pun intended) at vaccine ideas. I love drawing cows and zombies. I like this one.


This is when it was getting late in the day and I was getting desperate. I don’t like this one and I’m glad my editor didn’t either.


I kinda liked this one but one didn’t have anything to do with the other.


This was OK.


I took a few jabs (no pun intended) at AstraZeneca, but honestly, I don’t want to do anything that contributes to the anti-vaccine hysteria. This would have been a small tribute to Chuck Jones (no relation that I’m aware of, darn it).


Another at the expense of AstraZeneca.


And another at AstraZeneca. These were the first I did after being assigned to do something on the virus and vaccinations. After this one, I was done with ideas on AstraZeneca and moved on.


I really liked this idea and I published it last Saturday.


I sat on this one for a couple of days and I knew it would be fun. There were a few changes.


I liked this one.

Tomorrow, I’ll be drawing more roughs and you will probably see them in a week or so. Right now, I have no idea what I’ll be drawing and throwing at CNN. You’ll see what I came up with this Sunday. Isn’t it exciting?
