The Democrats are Anti-Family!

I have been off my game these past few weeks. During that time my father-in-law died of a horrific bout of cancer and my cat passed away recently - those things on top of other pressures, Dobson hasn't been as frequent as I would have liked it to have been.

When my wife and I chat, she is usually upset in the mornings because she has been watching CSPAN's Washington Journal. When we met 15 years ago, she was not that political, now she complains of how I hooked her on politics. I try to appear sympathetic and then wander into the bathroom to do silent Tiger Woods style fist pumps.

In other news, I have been trying to redraw my Joe Biden since he became the VP choice. I had Joe in a strip or two and hated the way the character turned out. It looked more like Ricardo Montalbán than Joe Biden.

The art evolution starts in the lower left corner and moves right and up. So I have been mumbling "HIS FUCKING JAW" for the past few days. The top of his head is square but not that square. His eye brows change color depending on lighting. His tan clashes with his bright white teeth. He is driving me nuts!!!

The second try looks like Pai Mei from Kill Bill and the third attempt is a dead-on Chris Dodd.

Work continues....

Re: The Democrats are Anti-Family!

One of these days I'll actually be able to read one of your cartoons, instead of getting the 'server exceeding bandwidth' warning.

Or maybe you'll just post it at full size so the words can be read.

I've often wondered if your strips are funny.  As of today I still don't know.

Maybe...
make the hair in back longer and flip it up the way his does? I have no drawing ability, so I don't know how you would translate that to paper, but it is something that catches my attention every time he turns to the side.
