AOC Dress

Heimlich and Harpies

No, I don’t really think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a harpy. I just liked that title for the blog. I’m a huge fan of hers.

This is the AOC dress idea I almost passed over. I didn’t need to do another cartoon on this issue, but I really liked this idea. Still, I was aiming to cover a different subject but I fell back on this one because I went to bed last night without a new cartoon idea. I had an allergic reaction to something while taking a walk through the college campus. I came home, took some generic Benadryl, and crashed around 9:00 PM.

I’m still kinda in the generic Benadryl haze so you’re not getting a real blog from me today. Yeah, I’m fine. No worries. I’ll rebound and come out swinging tomorrow.

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

I did a cartoon last week on AOC and her Met Gala dress. It was the same concept as this one, with a different message on a dress. I didn’t even think about what other cartoonists were doing on it, but the next day, I saw at least three (thanks to Mike Peterson’s “Cartoon of the Day” always featured at the Daily Cartoonist). And I didn’t care. I’m usually bothered when I do the same concept as other cartoonists, but I felt I did it differently enough. In fact, there were comments at GoComics at how I “schooled” the conversatives on how to do it. Ha.

So yeah, I used the concept again here, but I felt it was different enough. I stand by it. Now, I actually have a third idea on this issue but it doesn’t use the dress. I don’t know if I can do it since I’ve already covered the subject. I don’t think it’s one of those that needs to be repeated over and over…even though I think the idea (you have not seen yet) is hilarious. I’m thinking about it.

Oh yeah. When my editor saw the rough, he said he knew the “Gilligan” line would make it into the official cartoon.
