Here are a few hurricane related toons from the past while we wait for Hurricane Irma to pass by Winston-Salem over the next few days. The cartoons originally ran in The South Bend Tribune.



I am sorry to hear about the News-Sentinel moving from print to digital format starting in October. I worked for the NS in 1998 and 1999. I was brought on as a Knight -Ridder Manger trainee. It was a unique position because I was allowed to experiment with ideas concerning graphics design and illustrations. My experiment on the editorial page That was the week that was with editorial page editor Leo Morris landed me a position with the Philadelphia Daily News (Now that’s another story…ha-ha!). The concept was also used in South Bend to help boost the Sunday paper. I had fun. Working with people like Eunice Trotter, Projects editor, Carolyn DiPaolo, Managing Editor, April Lass, Designer, Leo Morris, editorial page editor and many others. I’m including some of work from the NS and story link below.

Road Trip1 Back in the spring, I took several day trips. One of them I took across the N.C. border into, Virginia, my home state, to Danville, Virginia. It was a nice drive going there. I like driving the back roads, seeing rural North Carolina. I always have a sketchbook with me. This goes back to when I was 12 years old in Richmond. On a bus ride I would observe things I saw, then when I got home I drew what interested me. I did this on my trip to Danville. I was amazed at the amount of Confederate flags that were flying on houses along the way, but the worst was yet to come when I got to Danville. Near the mall on a high hill overlooking the area, I saw the biggest confederate flag I’ve ever seen in my life in a yard on top of the hill. Down the hill and across from this rebel site was a car dealership. It had 20 or 30 American flags surrounding the cars. I guess the flags were there to counter the huge rebel flag. There was a good side to the visit: I had lunch at a great barbecue restaurant called the Checkered Pig.

ObamacareCutting his base

GOP and Trump see that getting rid of Obamacare is not that easy. Trump rewards his rich supporters with tax breaks, his poor and middle class supporters get cuts in healthcare and government service that help them. How long will it take them to figure out that they have been had?
