Little Smokies

It took a long time in PhotoShop to make those documents look aflame.

Not so inteligent

I took a lot of time learning tricks in Adobe PhotoShop to give Washington the look he has, rolling his eyes with the raised eyebrow. Too bad that I haven't really got my "G.W. Bush 43" down pat yet.

I know that the real prominent feature on the Secretary is the gap in her teeth, but I think she has mean lookin' eyes- so that's what I went with. Here's the original sketch-

Ioweagan Home Companion

Here are a couple of fun ones from 2006 that I don't have exact dates for. Both of these are pretty unique to Iowa.

Above is the proof when I put the whole page together for the newspaper. Below is a "tare-sheet" (the actual published page).Maid-Rite is a local Iowa fast food chain, they actually sell these things. It's an acquired taste. I'm a transplant from out West. Jello-salad grows on ya.

I swear deer seem to reproduce in Iowa faster than rats in New York City. They have fawns faster than motorists can hit them. Needless to say my own fender inspired this cartoon about animal jihadists.

Red Herring

Sort of a pet peeve of mine; emotional wedge issues that distract from genuine policy issues. Grrrr

This was the first cartoon in about a 2 year run for the small stable of newspapers in Western Iowa. First in the Charter Oak-Ute Newspaper and Schleswig Leader, printed by Lyon Publishing. The Lyons sold their three papers to Enterprise Publishing, who's HQ is in Blair NE. Eventually Enterprise folded the NEWSpaper and the Leader into their parent paper, the Mapleton PRESS, but they began running my column & cartoon in the PRESS.

It usually burns up on re-entry

July 2006, STS-121; "An analysis of the inspections revealed the presence of bird droppings on the leading edge of the right wing. The launch director has said he saw droppings in that location before launch. During the crew press conference on landing day the crew joked about the bird droppings indicating that they were still present on the orbiter though rather charred." (Wikipedia)

I just decided to post this under today's date, I don't remember what day it ran in the Charter Oak-Ute NEWSpaper back in the summer of '06.

That wasn't the only bird trouble this shuttle had- "STS-121 was the first launch during which NASA took special precautions to deter vultures, particularly the local turkey vultures, from flying over the area. Efforts included the swift removal of roadkill and other dead animals from areas around the launch site." (also Wikipedia)
