Clay Jones Editorial Comic Strip (on YouTube)

As Clay Jones says: It’s not one of his animations, It’s not one of his “watch me draw” videos, It’s not one of his print cartoons, No, it’s not any of the things we are used to enjoying from Clay. Clay sez: Check out my very first political cartoon video. It’s not a print cartoon, […]

CSotD: Cartoonists catch up

There are many things that Dear Leader can’t seem to understand, and Jimmy Margulies captures two of them here: One is that Trump genuinely has no sense of empathy. It’s not that he ignores or downplays the suffering of others. He genuinely does not get it. So he can cheerfully toss paper towels to people […]

CSotD: Waiting for that Hollywood ending

Michael de Adder‘s gag is particularly funny because it relies on the notion that this is all part of some cunning plan, and that, if he wanted to give away his secrets, Donald Trump could write a book about what he does and why. Also that his contradictory positions are somehow pleasurable. In reality, he’s […]

CSotD: Coping, and doing better

Graeme MacKay offers some advice for those working from home. Several decades ago — the kids are in their 40s now — I used to write at home and manage kids, so my patience with people who cartoon about the impossibility of that is fairly limited, though I guess it’s easier if you’ve been doing […]

CSotD: Interesting Times

There is apparently no such “Chinese curse” as “May you live in interesting times,” but Ed Hall does a nice job of illustrating the times in which we do live, a time in which a madman genuinely appears to believe that he can create truth simply by following his own self-centered, unexamined whims. “Truth” being […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies plus detective work

King Features wasn’t able to locate today’s “King of the Royal Mounted,” but a quick archival search brought it up at the Press-Democrat of Santa Rosa, not to be confused with Santa Rosita where detective work involves looking for buried treasure under a big W. So here it is and it turns out to be […]

CSotD: Graphic Stenography

There’s enough going on that the best way to start off is to have Tom Tomorrow bring us up to date on everything. Think of it as the five-minute NPR news break at the top of the hour before we get into Morning Edition or All Things Considered and start digging down on the details. […]

CSotD: Strips get up to date

I’m getting burned out on editorial cartoons, mostly because they aren’t saying much that’s new or important anymore. JD Crowe has the right to publicize the nitwits of spring break because it took pleas from several sources to get his governor to shut down Alabama’s beaches and get rid of spring break crowds. Parenthetically, I’d […]

CSotD: Morbid-19

We’ll start the day with Steve Sack‘s commentary on working at home, because he acknowledges the challenge without going overboard. With about half my career having been freelance, I’ve worked at home both with kids under foot and after they were long gone, and I do recognize the fact that my deadlines have been far […]

CSotD: Alone (and yet alive)

J.D. Crowe extends the invitation and we should all accept it and gather together, separately. I’m good with that. I’ve worked at home for the past decade and I don’t miss going into the office. But even JD Salinger used to come into town once in awhile to check his mail and have a cup of […]
