All Cartoons Attack!

Sorry I haven't been posting recently. School's been pretty busy, and I've been working on an animation demo reel.

But enough of that livejournal nonsense, let's post some cartoons!
This one ran on January 21st, 2010. I figured I should probably do a cartoon about Haiti Relief, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't sappy or condescending. Cartoon violence proved to be the best answer.
January 27th, 2010. I thought this one turned out to be a suitably bizarre tribute to the late Ted Kennedy. The fact that the caricature actually looks a little like Kennedy really made me happy.
January 28th, 2010. One of the things I try to avoid in my cartoons is really overt anger. I've found that anger and didactic-ism usually make for poor cartoons, and I was infuriated by the Supreme Court decision mentioned in the strip. By really going all out into goofiness I managed to make my point, without being on a soapbox and just yelling at the reader. Plus, I really like drawing giant monsters.

And yes, that turtle is Gamera.
