Official Post from Barry Deutsch: This is something I've heard and read from so many Black people - why do white people always try to touch our hair? And, as a white person, it's something that's completely invisible to me until I start listening to Black people. (One of many things). Which is the problem with the white character i

One thing that bothers me about pro-lifers (or "pro forced birthers," which is more accurate but a bit of a mouthful) is that they really seem to be exceptionally okay with being deceptive - much more so than so other groups I disagree with.Last year a group of pro-lifers lied their way into private meetings with various Planned Parenthood folks, secretly videotaped the meetings, and then posted highly edited videos online which gave the false im...

This is a new cartoon, done for Dollars and Sense Magazine. Right now, only Patrons can see it; I'll make this post public in a few days, but I wanted you guys to have a chance to see it first. (Those of you who are pledging $5 or more, feel free to start sharing this cartoon now!

If Libertarians were Housepets

If you like this cartoon, please help me by sharing it!

(Clarifying note for the new supporters - and hi! Welcome! Thank you! - I repost a lot of old comic strips here, but don't worry, you don't get charged for those.)This is one of my earliest cartoons (probably from 1999 or 2000), and I think it was my Dad's favorite of all the cartoons I did - he asked me for the original art at one point. I still think this is a pretty funny cartoon, and (since libertarians are apparently with us always) still o...

Your anti-gay jokes are gross. Don't help me. Get off my side.

Okay, I'm closing this thread now.

Tax Cuts Fix Everything!
Please support my cartoons by sharing them!
Or support my political cartooning at www.patreon.com/barry . Just fifty cents a cartoon helps me keep doing them!
#taxpolicy
Another cartoon from the archives! The point is pretty obvious, which is that it's ridiculous to pretend that tax cuts are the solution regardless of what the problem is.The art in this one is really unusual for me! Super-distorted people and thin lines of (relatively) uniform weight - not my usual. Looking at it now, I like the necktie in panel 1, and the huge grin in panel 5, and the disco suit in the final panel.If I were drawing this today, t...

From the archives: Top Ten Reasons For Ignoring Unemployment

If you enjoy my political cartoons, please help me make them! www.patreon.com/barry
This strip is several years old, and unemployment is finally in less crisis now - although still too high in many areas of the country. But even though it's now outdated, I'm still fond of this strip. I still like most of the artwork - it's always fun to do a "draw ten incredibly weird looking people" strip. The tennis-playing dude and the "deficit spending is wrong wrong wrong" dude are drawings that hold up especially well, to my eyes. On the ...

A cartoon about "pro-life" terrorism.

If you like this cartoon, please support by sharing! #prochoice

You can support these cartoons at my Patreon: www.patreon.com/barry
This cartoon was drawn in May of 2009, shortly after Dr. George Miller was shot to death by an anti-choice extremist. (That's a photo of Dr. Miller that the character is holding in panel 2). It was a cartoon drawn in a moment of extreme anger, and I think that shows in the drawings.Although it's not in my usual style, I think this cartoon has held up well over time. And, unfortunately, the issue of terrorist violence from pro-lifers - encouraged...

Story
Tagline
Born, drew some comics, died. Oh, wait, not that last bit yet.
Introduction
I'm a cartoonist, best known for my graphic novel "Hereville," about the magical adventures of a troll-fighting 11-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl. School Library Journal.com called Hereville "the best kid's graphic novel of 2010. Bar none."

I also create left-wing political cartoons, which can be found at leftycartoons.com, and blog at Alas, a Blog. I have a Patreon for my political cartoons, as well.
Bragging rights
My comic Hereville has been nominated for an Eisner, a Harvey, an Ignatz, an Andre Norton, won an Oregon Book Award, and is the only comic book ever to win a Sydney Taylor Book Prize. My political cartoons won the Charles Schulz Award. Also, I draw good grotesque faces.
