Op Ed Madness
Here's a couple cartoons for this weeks Stoutonia. I was asked to do a cartoon about the resurgence of 80's fashion. I was really hoping to find a way to incorporate MacGuyver, but alas my MacGuyver-like instincts were not with me today and I couldn't come up with anything. I settled for a mullet instead.
As far as the piggy flu cartoon goes, that was another one that I met a creative roadblock with. I do like how the drawing turned out however.
I'm getting sick of hearing about the swine flu. I have a feeling (and I pray that I'm right about this) that the seriousness of the swine flu is being over-exaggerated by the media. That being said, the death toll in Mexico being attributed to the swine flu rose yesterday from 20 in the morning to almost 150 by noon. Swine flu, drugs, drug runners, lots of guns.... why the hell would anyone vacation in Mexico. I for one will not be visiting there any time soon.
Oh, and Obama's coming to the end of his first 100 days. Pretty exciting stuff if I might say so.
