Cartoon of the Day: Roses are Green in '14!

The News-Herald - December 29
The Michigan State University Spartans will be kicking off against the Stanford Cardinal in the Rose Bowl on January 1. My Sunday, December 29 News-Herald editorial cartoon celebrated the trip to Pasadena, where I anticipate that the nation's number-one defense, and an inspired offense will prove that roses are green in 2014. Go Green! Go White!
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Merry Christmas to All!

The News-Herald - December 25
It was 116 years ago that Francis Pharcellus Church, editor of The New York Sun newspaper assured eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon that there is, indeed, a Santa Claus. This year, I borrowed an excerpt from his 1897 column for my Christmas editorial cartoon in  The News-Herald, to wish my Downriver readers a Merry Christmas.

Off the Drawing Board:  I also drew a version of this cartoon for The Press & Guide, wishing my readers in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all my readers throughout metro Detroit, and those who read over the Internet outside metro Detroit, may you enjoy and share peace, love and kindness. I hold you all in my heart!
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Feeling Better Already!

Crain's Detroit Business - December 9
While some are getting heartburn and headaches over the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," others - like Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan - are finding it a healthful alternative to what came before.
That's the Point!

Off the Drawing Board: This week's final cartoon was very much like the initial thumbnail idea-starter rough (number 1) with only a few dialogue edits and art refinements. Rough number 2 offered a different take on how the ACA affects Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, with a focus on its clients.

CARTOONS of the DAY: What I am Celebrating this Season ...

The News-Herald - November 27

The Press & Guide - November 27
Each Thanksgiving, I celebrate the things for which I'm thankful Downriver and in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights in The News-Herald and The Press & Guide, respectively. Here are my reflections this year ... and I want to add a special "thank you!" to all the writers and editors at both papers - their work is the inspiration for my weekly editorial cartoons.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Shopping Maul

The News-Herald - December 1
Friends who went ventured out shopping over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend reported to me that throughout area malls, the holiday spirit was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Do you know the difference between a mob and a mass of holiday shoppers? Me neither.
That's the Point!
