Aaron Taylor – the “editorial cartoonist in the reddest part of the reddest state” (Daily Herald – Provo UT) has launched a blog. Here’s his inaugural post:
Have you ever come across an editorial cartoon in the newspaper and found yourself muttering under your breath what you think of it? I have to imagine it’s probably something quite profound and, unfortunately, it’s only your dog, Puddles, who gets to hear it. Well, now’s your opportunity to be heard. I’m Aaron Taylor, the editorial cartoonist for the Daily Herald and I’ve created the Daily Herald Cartoonist blog, where the readers actually get to comment on that day’s cartoon. Tell me the cartoon was lousy and why. Tell me my caricature of Hillary Clinton looks more like Hilary Duff. Tell me to get a real job. Tell me if (GASP!) you actually liked the cartoon. Even if you want to discuss the topic the cartoon touches upon, it’s all yours. Remember, let’s keep it civil and no potty mouths allowed.
Not only is this a forum to discuss the issues, but I’ll give you a behind-the-scenes look at creating the cartoons, sketches, and some things that are running through this tiny, squishy brain of mine. And by the way, I’ve got a big announcement in the next couple of weeks, so stay posted.
So far he’s posting his cartoons and the Life & Style sections that he also produces.
