Here's another gag, published ten years ago, that would be timely and appropriate today. For two more election-oriented gags of mine, both published in 1982 and both with almost identical drawings, check out here and here.






National Review, June 10, 1988

Explanation: Back in those days, some people weren't happy with the "liberal" leanings of the U.S. Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren. This cartoon was a natural for William Buckley's conservative publication, National Review, although I didn't draw it with that magazine in mind. I was kind of hoping that The New Yorker or The Wall Street Journal would nibble on it, but apparently that was not meant to be.






Review of the News, March 16, 1983







National Business Employment Weekly, March 31, 1991







Stock Market, September 1978

This is one of the few times I ventured into the realm of "editorial/political" cartooning. I have no idea what our peanut farmer/President did to get my dander up, but it must have been something very dramatic . . . and confusing.

It seems to me that, with the publication of his most recent book, Mr. Carter is getting more publicity and press coverage than he received when he was in office.






National Review, December 31, 1994







Better Homes and Gardens, November 1987







Brandweek, March 20, 2000







The Wall Street Journal, October 27, 1982

This is one of two similar cartoons I did during the 1982 election campaign. For the other one, see the King Features entry for August 5, 1982.






King Features "Laff-A-Day, August 5, 1982


king080582.JPG The political campaign of 1982 must have been an exciting time, at least for me. I drew this cartoon, and another one very similar to it, with a slightly different caption, and they were published within a couple of months of each other. See the Wall Street Journal entry for October 27, 1982 for the other version.

I suppose I should have been embarrassed, but I'm sure no one even noticed it at the time.
