|I always wanted to be able to draw political cartoons, but I never had the artistic talent. Today, though, I discovered David Rees, who writes a great, smart comic strip called Get Your War On, for Rolling Stone, using exclusively public domain clip-art (example at right). So having already mastered PowerPoint Art, I knew I was ready.
So here is the first, last and only edition of my clip-art comic strip, Worf.
More on the above stories (no, I didn’t make any of them up):
1. Genocide in Sudan
2. Al’ Jazeerah goes to Jail
3. Colombian atrocities against civilians
4. Courtney Love’s breast
5. Rush Limbaugh’s civil rights
Whew! Do I ever have renewed respect for cartoonists now. This is hard, even if you don’t have to worry about the artwork.
Now it’s your turn. Yes, you can be a serious comic art student, too! To make it even easier, I’ve even cut and pasted some clip-art for you. All you have to do is provide the captions. Just copy the jpg below (DIYCartoon.jpg) to your graphics software, type in the captions, and post to your blog. Or just post your suggested dialogue as a comment to this post. Doonsbury look out.
