Then, without leaving the comfort of your Barcalounger,® watch CagleCartoon TV (YouTube).
We dive into the Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump affair, discussing hush money, potential indictment, and the role of political cartoonists in today’s climate. Joined by award-winning cartoonists Pat Byrnes, Bob Englehardt, and Bill Day, we analyze various drawings related to the scandal and discuss how Trump’s base continues to support him. We also touch on the art of anonymous cartoonists, the challenges faced by political cartoonists in reaching younger audiences, and the importance of delivering a message through cartoons.
Back where we started…
Have I not been paying attention or is that a new/different National Cartoonists Society logo?
I like it.
