Some 2016 election catch up….

As most of you can identify with, it’s been a crazy election season and I’ve let my website fall behind.  Here’s a few recent cartoons but head over to the Washington Post and take a look at the last couple of months on my author’s page (disregard that one from 2014 which insists on staying in the loop)11012016trumpcavefin

Sketches of the GOP Cleveland convention

The crazy Republican gathering of bread and circuses is over. Family Trump continues its promotional tour, Senator Cruz commits political suicide, and Angry White Men continue to  yell.  You can find all the live sketches here, here, and here.Balloons07212016CruzConventionPerformance

Canadian & US cartoonists on The Zoomer

Last May I headed off to Toronto to attend the Association of Canadian Cartoonists convention and spend time with some of my favorite colleagues and friends.  While there a small group of us appeared on The Zoomer to talk shop and show our work.  Conrad Black (yes, that Conrad Black) is a regular participate on the network and also a frequent target of my Canadian colleagues over the years, as you’ll hear about in the interview.  Terry Mosher (aka Aislin), a longtime friend,  from the Montreal Gazette gives some great insights and of course wonderful quips.  Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 8.00.32 AM

Social media and the Cruz cartoon controversy

I had always planned to write about the controversy over my Cruz cartoon last year but wanted to wait for a while to really think about the role social media played in it.  I hoped the Columbia Journalism Review would consider publishing my piece and was so pleased when then CJR editor Liz Spayd agreed to take it on.  Thank you also to current CJR editor Vanessa Gezari and Maralee Schwartz for their expertise and guidance; they were a pleasure to work with.

Trump is an opportunist; we are the problem

We have met the enemy and-with the help of a celebrity focused news media- he is us.
