Gold Cup

Costa Rica Goalie


crsta09012017

Here’s a little cartoon I drew for The Costa Rica Star two weeks ago. I should have posted it last week, but I was preoccupied with hurricane news and other stuff.

Costa Rica was facing the United States in the CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifying, and they won 2-0. I tried to research to explain how far they went with the rest of the tournament, but it’s soccer and I couldn’t understand it.

I’ll be drawing another cartoon for The Star later this week, in addition to a request by a newspaper in New York. I’ll be back on my regular syndication schedule tonight, so you’ll have a new national cartoon Monday morning.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated.

Gold Cup Crocodiles


crsta07212017

For this week’s cartoon for The Costa Rica Star, I took on the issue of “too many crocodiles” in that nation.

One agency in that nation is suing two others to conduct a study to determine if there is over-population of crocodiles in that country. Lawsuits must work different in Costa Rica than in the U.S. Is there a crocodile return policy? But that’s not the only croc-related lawsuit going on down there. A mayor is in hot water over the safety of people who gather to view crocodiles.

For sheer Costa Rican croc-related entertainment, watch this guy eat a stingray.

There weren’t any crocs playing goal tender for the Costa Rican team in the Gold Cup semi-finals on Saturday, but maybe they could have used one. The CR team was on a roll after defeating Panama to advance to meet the United States in Dallas. The home of the Dallas Cowboys is where a lot of bad things happen, and this time it was for the Costa Ricans as the U.S. defeated them 2-0.

Better luck next time, Costa Rica. But hey, I got to draw a crocodile.

There will be a new cartoon from me for the Star next weekend.
