I mentioned back in August that I had a project I was going to launch now in September. I want to take my political cartoons in another direction. The reason is simple: many people have been insulted by what I was doing before. I am not interested in insulting anyone. I am interested in expanding the conversation.
This comic and the next two are a little background. I only want to provide a little information and then let more background dribble out as time goes on. My comic on September 13 and yesterday were the first comics in this series. I wanted to draw comics for this series on the 14th and 15th, but I was amazingly sick. I posted very quick drawings in place of the comics that needed to appear. That won’t happen again.
I will still draw the occasional portrait and map, but my focus will be telling a story and using the metaphors of Science Fiction to explore American Politics.
(This comic was drawn with a PaperMate Flair felt tip pen and a TUL 0.7 ball point pen; shaded with an INC Chisel Tip Permanent Marker; sketched with a yellow Sharpie Accent highlighter & colored, edited and lettered in PhotoShop Elements.)
