Here’s the batch of roughs from the week before last. It’s another small one, which I love.
Antonio Brown was a player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At one point during a game a couple weeks ago, he was apparently fired from the time. Did I mention it was during the game? There have been conflicting reports over why, but according to some reports, the Bucs wanted him to get back into the game while he was injured and they fired him over his refusal. His reaction to this was to rip his jersey off and walk off the field. I tried to tie that into the Chicago school situation but it didn’t work…so I bailed on it.
This was the cartoon for the CNN newsletter. I really liked this one and I would have drawn it for my newspapers if they hadn’t picked it. It did really well on social media.
I didn’t like this one. The thing is, kids…if you support Donald Trump and his lies, you’re the one deranged.
Seeing this again for the first time in over a week did make me smirk.
I was trying to do a satire of a statement Trump issued for January 6 that contained a lot of stuff that’s not relevant, along with some conspiracy theories. But this was mostly reporting and less satire. It’s like the movie “Don’t Look Up.” It’s hard to out-crazy the crazies.
I was supposed to be doing something on the “former defeated president” when I made this. I liked this one too much and it became a cartoon for my newspapers. A Ted Cruz tummy tickle? I like the weird ideas.
