Roughs, Volume 142

These roughs were drawn on June 16 and June 17.

I was seriously considering this cartoon but others issues got in the way. Also, I wasn’t positive that another cartoonist hadn’t already done the idea.

I would have drawn this for CNN if they wanted it, but I wasn’t going to draw it for my syndication, even though I do like it. I had already done one on drunk Rudy and I didn’t want to beat it to death.

I was somewhere in between love and hate for this one.

This is one of those that there was no way I wasn’t going to draw it.

This is the one that became the cartoon for the CNN Opinion newsletter AND, my editors didn’t ask me to change anything…even after I made the cartoon weirder. They let me run wild.

I didn’t love this one all that much but I felt it was important to do. While most cartoonists were doing Fathers’ Day, I chose to do Juneteenth. I think there were only about three cartoons on Juneteenth from the nation’s cartoonists.

I liked this one but I don’t know if it works.

That’s it for this week, kids. Which of these are your faves?
