I originally drew this cartoon in or shortly after 2003. Back then, the third panel caption referenced the historic Goodridge decision legally recognizing gay marriage in the state Massachusetts. I updated the caption in panel 3 to reflect certain happy recent developments. :-)I'm still happy with this strip. I'd draw it a bit better today, but nothing about the 2003 drawings makes me wince. And the cartoon's idea still works for me. I hope you l...
This cartoon was inspired by a Huffington Post article by Jennifer Jenkins, in which she quoted Judge Richard Posner:What happens if these underlying sources are copyrighted? As Judge Richard Posner pointed out, “Romeo and Juliet itself would have infringed Arthur Brooke’s The Tragicall Historye of Romeo and Juliet… which in turn would have infringed several earlier Romeo and Juliets, all of which probably would have infringed Ovid’s story of Pyr...
(For new supporters, you'll notice that most of the posts I make here are reprints of strips from my archives. Don't worry - you don't get charged by Patreon for these old strips! Only new strips count for that. :-) )This is another older one, but the issue remains current, and it won't surprise me if it's still current fifty years from now. The Republican base likes the idea of Social Security being privatized (as long as it won't affect their ...
This cartoon was inspired by a peer-reviewed study by Professor Suzanne Mettler of Cornell University. The study is “Reconstituting the Submerged State: The Challenge of Social Policy Reform in the Obama Era,” in the September 2010 issue of Perspectives on Politics (pdf link). Mettler found that huge numbers of Americans who had benefited from government programs claimed to have never been helped by the government.The econ blog The Baseline Scena...
This cartoon is what, in my mind, I call an "explainer." It's not an especially funny or incisive cartoon; it just tries to explain something in a reasonably clear and entertaining fashion. And although "explainers" aren't ever going to be the cartoons that I'm proudest of, they do serve a legitimate purpose, and I'm really happy when these cartoon get reprinted in places like textbooks and union newsletters.Artwise, I'm pretty happy with these d...
Born, drew some comics, died. Oh, wait, not that last bit yet.
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."
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.
