My longtime friend and first Facebook friend of Aaron the Ogre requested this cartoon and one other that I’ll do after I come back from work.
(This political cartoon was drawn with a Fine Point Sharpie and a Chisel Tip Sharpie; sketched up with a yellow Sharpie Accent highlighter & colored, edited and lettered in PhotoShop Elements.)
This picture is why I love Sharpies. I drew this in less then 20 minutes and processed in PhotoShop Elements in just about ten minutes. I like the speed the ink goes down on the paper. The difference between this drawing and the last two is scale. I drew this on a standard sheet of paper instead of scaled panels to fit a particular format.
Edit: I did use another pen for shading: Prismacolor Premier French Grey Grey 30%. The yellow is the highlighter I use for sketching.

I was very inspired by the following two cartoons drawn by one of my favorite cartoonists:
Both President Obama and Mitt Romney need to address China on a point-by-point, issue-by-issue path to free speech and the rule of law.
I’ve been reading a lot about what is happening to China committed by technocrats who do not understand humility. Chen Guangcheng’s nephew is sitting in prison for attempted murder when he and his family were attacked by the officials in a bungled home invasion. This is justice in China and all of Asia.
Until we, as Americans, understand the implications of Asian justice, more people will be injured by our ignorant pride.
