Drawing from TV has its disadvantages as it tends to flatten your subject matter.  But in this case perhaps the subjects are flatter in real life.

  1. Hi David,

    I saw your article in the EMU Exemplar magazine and so I am at your site.

    I drew cartoons for the Eastern Echo from 1977-1980. I ended up in as an art director, creative director at ad agencies for 23 years. The visible thing I did was I created the Domino’s Pizza Noid Character.

    I read with interest your article because I have tried on and off for years to break into the political cartoon markets but with no luck. So, maybe I will try to go this WordPress route and just start posting.

    Thanks for doing the article and real nice drawings and cartoons you have here.

  2. Dear Artist,
    I enjoyed your drawings. I am a fellow artist myself but am unknown. You have a very great talent and I appreciate it.

    Thanks David! I appreciate your comments. Start a blog! This is exactly the reason I started mine.

    Let me know if you do!

  4. I thought another might be one showing Pres Obama standing on a podium on a platform declaring, “Universal Health care for everyone”
    Then under the platform are two pillars holding it up. On the left pillar is “kill the unborn babies” on the right pillar is “give end of life counseling to the elderly”
    Then between the 2 pillars are two lemmings talking saying,
    “At least the weakest get treated equally” and the other saying ” but I like my parents”

  5. Hello David,
    I love your work, and I was hoping to use some of your images in a PowerPoint presentation for a graduate course I am taking. The presentation will eventually be posted on the department website.

    I will not use the images for any other purpose without contacting you first.

    Thank you so much, and keep working…

  7. hey, is this graphics from you?

    we want to use it for the cover of a non-commercial german magazine (http://www.cilip.de), that deals critically with police developments, police violence, policing dissent and international security collaboration. the next issue will be about “police and internet”. it is low budget magazine, so no money is made of… greetinx!
