"If cartooning doesn't work out, you'll always have teaching to fall back on." So I drew this on the board for my Civics classes. A viable alternative to V-Day.

So after a couple nights of bad dreams and a couple days analyzing them, I figured out the obvious. Vampires are superficial people who try to suck the life joy out of you and zombies are brainless conformist sheep who just want you to give up and join their nihilistic idiocy.

I've left this blog fallow for too long just because I've been so busy. Maybe since I can use this iPod instead of a scanner, I can actually make the summer cartoon-diary idea work this time. Wish me luck.

Sorry its been a few days. The yearbook took longer than I expected. So did wasting time on Pinterest. We'll see how spotty I get from here on out. I don't enjoy our scanner at home as much as the one I have at school. Then there's softball games and 4H and family stuff. Perhaps I will draw more in June, but you won't see them till July/August. Whatever. It's not like its more than a hobby. Whatever. Have a great summer everybody. Make sure you read some funnies somewhere. Maybe even in some newspapers. Won't that be quaint?

Seriously? It has been December since I've posted any collages and LAST SUMMER since I've put any cartoons up here? I'd like to say that was due to a shameful lack of discipline, but really I've just been way way way too busy. I can't believe that 30 years ago I dreamed that this would be my vocation, not just a hobby. Today I don't even have time for a hobby, let alone this one. C'est la vie, no? C'est ci bon, c'est ci bon. Hey that reminds me of an old Eartha Kitt song.
No promises THIS summer, especially with all thats going on; dance, softball, family visits, 4H, etc. etc. But, by girls did get me this nifty notebook for Easter, and sitting there at softball practice last night, I actually started sketching again. So, here's the first fruits. Now, back to work finishing the school yearbook, working on the district newsletter, updating the school website, yadda yadda yadda...

Yes, I realize that LEGALLY, he's actually correct- but come on, it still sounds absurd and amoral coming out of anyone's mouth. That's because it is absurd and not just amoral, but immoral. How'd I do at making him look as plastic, stiff, polished and fake as I could?
By the way, here's the Wikipedia entry on why this election will be as frightening as any in our history, in case you're interested:
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court holding that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited—because of the First Amendment. The 5–4 decision, in favor of Citizens United, resulted from a dispute over whether the non-profit corporation Citizens United could air a film critical of Hillary Clinton, and whether the group could advertise the film in broadcast ads featuring Clinton's image, in apparent violation of the 2002Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, commonly known as the McCain–Feingold Act., was a

Let's face it, Nixon had a "Southern Strategy" and Lee Atwater had Reagan start his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi to take advantage of "latent" prejudices essentially to the capture the Confederate voters who left the Democratic party when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act and the Republican party has pretty much been the party of anti-intellectual, straight, white, Evangelical males ever since. Now we have Rick Perry because Mitt Romney isn't Christian enough and Sarah Palin and Michelle Michelle Bachmann are still women.
A 'C' student governor from Texas that everybody would love to have a beer with... hmmm, where have I seen this movie before?
