My political cartoon ran in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News this morning.
After listening to both the Democrat and Republican conventions, I was inspired to find a way to effectively sum up both parties’ platforms in a single sentence. I believe I have succeeded.
My cartoon ran in the Moscow Pullman Daily News on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.
My cartoon ran in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News yesterday.
It’s been a busy quarter at the Spokane Falls Community College Pullman Center. I’m the advisor of the Creative Writing Club, which undertook a joint venture with Film Club this year. The Creative Writing Club produced a screenplay, which the Film Club then produced. The final product was released at an end-of-quarter showing on June 8th.
When the script was complete, the club decided that they wanted to try their hand at comic strips and came up with a couple of fun ones. Those were displayed on the big screen in the foyer, enabling them to share their creativity with the rest of the student body. I received permission from some of the students to display their work here.
Education officials unveiled updated climate science curriculum standards on Friday, May 19th, after collecting more than 1,000 public comments. The new revisions to Idaho’s K-12 science standards downplay the impacts of human activity on climate change in order to appease Idaho’s Republican-controlled Legislature.

Well, I’ve been published again. The Spokesman Review Huckleberries Online Blog ran the cartoon below on Thursday, January 26th. The editor of the Moscow-Pullman Daily News said it was confusing and he didn’t get it, so it did not appear in the local paper.
Sometimes decisions aren’t as difficult as they seem.
‘Tis the season to make an ass of yourself. There is nothing like proclaiming the love of Jesus that brings out the downright-nasty-not-niceness in Christians each December.
Spiteful memes show up in Facebook feeds stating, “It’s Merry Christmas, say the fucking words, damn it!” “Stop the War on Christmas,” “Put Christ back in Christmas!” and my personal favorite, “When someone wishes you ‘Happy Holidays’ remind them that ‘Holidays’ are HOLY DAYS!” The problem with the holy days proclaimers, and the majority of Christians, is that they fail to realize there is more than one holiday in December and most of them pre-date Christianity.
To entertain myself, and occasionally my children, I create political cartoons. My latest creation ran in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News on November 21, 2016. The cartoon was also offered to the Spokesman Review for the Huckleberries Online Blog, a site which has previously published my work. Unfortunately, they declined this one, stating, “I don’t like the word “racist” used on my blog to label anyone unless someone is a card-carrying, Richard butler-type racist — dfo.” C’est la vie.
In the fast paced world of internet instant gratification, less than perfect work gets published all the time. My own work is an example of that. I sent the cartoon below to the Spokesman Review, Huckleberries online blog and it was published within hours of clicking send.
