Ted Cruz Booger

Another Tablet Sketch: Carly Loves Ted


Untitled3_001

I made a comment yesterday about Carly Fiorina endorsing Ted Cruz. It was regarding how Fiorina and Ted have run the two most dishonest presidential campaigns this year….so far. Listen to both their comments regarding Planned Parenthood. Egad the lies!

A reader told me she felt a cartoon was coming on the subject. I told her there wasn’t. Carly isn’t really cartoon-worthy anymore. Not at this point anyway. But she and Ted are both worth some drawing practice on the tablet. I mean, look at those faces!

Do you know what the thing is about drawing on a tablet? It’s not so much getting used to the size of the screen, the drawing program, or the stylus. It’s getting used to drawing on glass that’s on top of paper. It’s like drawing with the tip of your pen a quarter of a centimeter above your canvas while you feel like you’re making contact. Yeah, that’s still screwing with me. But I am loving the way the colors are meshing like a real painting. I am hoping to add this technique to my “official” cartoons in the future, after this old dog learns the new trick. Though it will probably add to the time it takes to color a cartoon.

An intelligent Debate?


cjones03072016

I watched the Democratic Debate last night. The candidates didn’t create nicknames for each other. No one was called a “liar.” There was talk about the Flint water crisis, student debt, trade, bailouts, the auto industry. There wasn’t a penis reference. There wasn’t a booger. It was so boring.

The lowest jab might have been when Sanders referenced the Republican debate as proof that we need to do more for mental health.

In comparison nobody comes off looking presidential, or even as an adult, at the Republican debates. There’s no maturity or intellectualism, which of course are bad things in GOP Land. The Republicans actually lauded Michigan governor Rick Snyder a hero in the Flint water crisis. What?

Even though I could watch ten more Republican debates because they’re so entertaining, I think we’ve had enough for this cycle. If you don’t know where the candidates stand by this point then you’re an idiot. I’m not saying you should have your mind made up, as I’m not entirely decided either. But I know where the candidates stand.

I usually avoid drawing cartoons of people watching television. I’ve drawn way too many of those in years past. But sometimes it’s unavoidable because watching TV is what people do. And it’s hard to avoid it when the topic is the content your kids are watching.

Trump and his Teeny, Tiny….Hands


Untitled1_003 (1)

By now you’ve heard about the last GOP debate. Gee, what silliness occurred this time? Within the first few minutes Donald Trump made a reference to his penis. And what was that thing on Ted Cruz’s lip and where did it go? If you were going to pick one booger eater out of all these candidates you would probably pick Cruz. No pun intended.

I haven’t sent this cartoon to my clients. I’m not sure it’s up to their standards. Plus, there’s no black and white version which I always send to my newspapers along with the color files. I would think they would not want a penis reference cartoon but I’ve noticed a few of my colleagues have already gone there as well. Thank you, Republicans, for giving cartoonist wiener and booger joke material. We can’t get this stuff from Bernie.

This was drawn on my tablet last night while sitting in a restaurant and I’ve already shared it on Facebook. So for you guys who do not follow me on Facebook, or aren’t even on Facebook, this is for you. Tell all those people at GoComics to swing by and visit.

Oh yeah. Here’s a Christie caricature that was also created on the tablet last night. It’s disgusting.
