Rob Ford

1500-20131119-RhinoFord

I never would have guessed that my 1500th daily drawing would be of a crack-smoking mayor… but here we are! If you haven’t been following the Rob Ford story, I’d suggest looking it up—he might actually be a cartoon character. Earlier today, during a City Council hearing to vote on stripping Ford of his executive powers due to the crack use, etc., he charged at a spectator and in the process knocked over a council member.

Crumby Nixon

1495-20131112-CrumbyNixon

For my Illustration in Context class, in my Illustration MFA program, we had to do a portrait for a magazine cover. The catch was that it needed to be influenced by an illustrator we studied in class and the portrait needed to be of someone who was an important figure during the time the illustrator was most prominent. I decided to do a portrait of Richard Nixon, influenced by R. Crumb, for Mad Magazine. I thought I’d use this as a daily drawing because it was fun to do, and I thought I’d share.

Scalia and the Devil

1474-20131014-Scalia&TheDevil

In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, talked about his belief in the devil as an actual person. I find it disconcerting that someone we trust to make decisions for us as a nation believes in the devil.

In the Gospels, the Devil is doing all sorts of things. He’s making pigs run off cliffs, he’s possessing people and whatnot. And that doesn’t happen very much anymore.
