Post Election Cartoons
So, With the election here and gone, I wanted to show my characters reacting to the results. I've always wanted to do a cartoon based on this punchline for years. Didn't know how to do it without it seeming lamely dated. The election gave me the opportunity to use it.
The problem? I didn't know who was going to win.
The solution? Do two cartoons with a setup that is different and still able to use the same punchline.
I only needed to do the first panel twice. The characters second panel reactions fits no matter what the first panel shows. I'm proud of that. Now, I'm super glad that President Obama won the election but I feel that the cartoon in which Mitt Romney "wins" is better drawn and a better fit.
