Cartoonists not drawn to Tory leader

Via The Comics Reporter comes a link to a story about how editorial cartoonists in Canada are reacting to having to draw a new set of politicians that come with a new election cycle.

Stephen Harper just doesn’t have it.

“It’s a nightmare,” the Toronto Sun’s legendary cartoonist Andy Donato said of the prospect of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “He’s too hard to draw. He’s got a pretty prominent nose, but when you get the nose down the rest doesn’t fit in.”
