"Prescott's Own Cartoon Laureate & One-Man Comi-Con"

POLITICAL CARTOONZ & EDITORIAL COLUMNZ

Mark Twain once remarked that newspapers were not just for reporting the news, but existed to

"Make you mad enough to do something about it." I'm sure he was talking about the Op/Ed Page.

" AS SEEN IN... "

THE ART OF ANGER MANAGEMENT is a companion column to the FUNNY PAPERZ cartoons.

My career as a Political Journalist began on September 11, 2001. My first nationally syndicated strip,

Funny Paperz

WEBSTER came to a halt with the fall of the Twin Towers.

Information Press

We all fought back in our own time - in our own way. Mine was daily. Six times a week for five years.

InsectMan.us

The yield was 1000+ cartoons, 9 original books, 2 collections, honors from the National Press Club,

Los Angeles Journal

a national book promotion and statewide book signing tour, spotlight in the Los Angeles Times and

Los Angeles Times

ultimately -- a Pulitzer Prize Nomination.

During the summer of 2006, I relocated to the Central Coast quickly becoming a familiar fixture in local coffee shops and city boardwalks. Laying aside the more cruel and cynical tools of this trade in favor of the upbeat and affectionate, I have "buried the hatchet" of political journalism in the peak of Morro Rock and devoted myself to local issues and concerns...

Editorial Cartooning can become a disgusting habit. Much like smoking and as difficult to kick. Sometimes I have a relapse... as illustrated here on the following pages. Sometimes the relapse is due to stress; you know - suppressing that perfectly natural urge to strangle some idiot. Sometimes it is brought on by fatigue; don't you get tired of the same old B.S. after a while? If I am honest with myself and follow the same 12 steps my best friend Bert does, I'd be inclined to say that from time to time I have an allergic reaction to public stupidity and irresponsible leadership. I fall off the wagon of my own abstinence. Oh well...I guess we'll just have to take things "one day at a time..." As Charlie Chaplin said:
"In the end, everything is a gag."


APRIL 2010 UPDATE! Having dropped anchor in the lee of another sizeable rock (Thumb Butte) above

Prescott, AZ - I succumbed once again to an ad soliciting my opinionated ruminations. In a boomarang of a compliment - they rejected my first proposal AND MADE ME A FINALIST in their cartoon competition...

Ironically I quoted Mark Twain at the top of  this section  - who late in life attempted more serious writing than his early career - only to be typecast into cranking out  more "funny books".
I appear to be a similar victim of my own sarcasm.

Above is the thumbnail link to the follow-up submission, wherein I assault everyone at City Hall with a good-intentioned mustachio! For the clean-shaven version of these political portraits clik HERE.


MAY 2010:

The old adage, "When one door closes - a window opens up..." seems especially true now as tradional venues for Opinion Pieces are drying up or being shut down I have been given the rare oppor -TOONity to combine my high horse AND a holier-than-thou attitude in a new Christian Editorial series, "Anno Domini"!


JUNE 2010:

"Anno Domini" strikes a nerve - with the very association dedicated to freedom of the press! By unanimous vote of the current president and board of directors of the AAEC my membership has been revoked and entire archive of work deleted from their national news servers. "Give us Barabus!" indeed.


DECEMBER 2010:

NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR A.D.!

 Wow. It seems we really do laff best when we laff last.

The editing team of Charles Brooks' BECY 2011 has decided to include the very same Christian editorials that were censored from the national news servers by the current president & board of directors of AAEC. I  guess being a past president of the same organization has it's perks. And we are very grateful. Vindicated - and grateful. The last time I entered this national competition was 2005. (We won that year too!)

IN THE NEWS: "BECY - 2011"

Just in time for our One-year anniversary of dropping anchor in Prescott, Tonya & Lew invited me back to talk about our new project "Anno Domini", and our latest national award and recognition with Charles Brooks' "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year - 2011".

NEW YEARS 2015

I'M JUST FOLLOWING DOCTOR'S ORDERS...

Following my first heart attack in the Fall of 2013, the failure of my by-pass grafts in the Spring of 2014, a second heart attack and then a series of cardiac stents I have been advised to cool my jets on anything more controversial than a good cuppa coffee.
This is very difficult for me.
I made my bones on controversy and poking people in the eye from both sides of the aisle on everything, especially politics and religion, but it looks like the flip-side of the coin of the mercy & miracle of being alive is getting a permanent "time-out" from the debate team.
Sooooo ~
Can I buy you a cup? We won't talk about anything except how wonderful it is to be alive...
