Fishing In Costa Rica

Here’s this week’s cartoon for The Costa Rica Star.

The International Surfing Association (ISA) will be holding it’s 2016 World Surfing Games in Jaco, Costa Rica. Many people will use the event as an excuse to go fishing for prostitutes, which is apparently a really big deal in Jaco. If you google the Hotel Cocal the first page will have results about prostitution and the hotel. Since prostitution is legal, I’m not sure the hotel has an issue with reputation.

How Many Colones?

I can insults cops on an international level.

Here’s this weekend’s cartoon drawn exclusively for The Costa Rica Star. We’re doing a “Living Pura Vida” series of cartoons. We’re doing two a month until we get bored and move on to other things.

When I submit the cartoons to the editors, and a few other staffers who might have some input, we usually go back and forth with terminology. I don’t live in Costa Rica and I can use their help. In the rough I had it as “dollars” but I knew that would change. I needed to know the amount and I did my own googling. The 50,000 colones was suggested and we decided to print it that way instead of “c 50,000” which is how some publications would print it.

In case you’re wondering, 50,000 colones is a little less than $100 U.S. dollars.

Wanna see the rough? About two months ago I stopped drawing on paper and using pen, pencils, ink, white out, erasers, glue sticks, etc. Everything is now created digitally. You can ask me about that but I have to warn you, I will bog you down in geek chat over it.
