Political Cartoons and Cartoonists in the News


Kevin Siers References A Past Master

Not news but I enjoyed Kevin Siers tribute to the famous Robert Minor cartoon
and using it for a current situation.




Elsewhere someone takes a famous cartoonist’s old cartoon and changes it to please his own political ideology without so much as a fare-thee-well. Something that seems to be increasingly common.

It’s not my favourite kind of imagery, familiar and overused, and quite frankly, if I could choose which of my cartoons could go viral this would be last on the list.

So to my surprise it resurfaced on a popular cartoon Facebook page 12 and a half years after, the image intact, and the captions butchered to suit an American audience.

Graeme MacKay is, naturally, a bit pissed.
