A good cartoon.
Bill Day adds to the pile of Okay L.A. related word play with this lazily photoshopped together silhouette. Also…Gradients.
Glad to see that indiegogo money helped Bill step up his game.
Seriously, if you cannot communicate something other than “A bad thing happened and america is sad” DO NOT do a cartoon about it.
How about: If you can’t communicate something other than “Something happened” DO NOT do a cartoon about it.
Keep digging, Bill -
“Isn’t technology so awesome? It allows us to be even lazier and produce more work without saying anything.”
Panel two. “We lost the election because our tax exempt status was not applied as quickly as it could have been. If only we’d had it sooner, Romney would have looked so much more charismatic.”
Oh look, another teddy bear with one eye.
You know, for all the cartoons and rhetoric about America mourning together and helping one another, I’m cynical enough to believe all the media attention is really just about reveling in the disaster and mourning porn.
Thank you, David, for handling the bad Oklahoma cartoons today
Arguably worse than the “a tragedy occurred and people are bummed” cartoons in the wake of whatever tragedy are the “isn’t it great people are sending help in the wake of this tragedy” cartoons. It’s in the same vein as the ‘illustrate the news’ blandness as the former kind, but there’s also this not-quite-earned back-patting with it.
Oh fuck you. A torn flag AND a teddy bear AND OF COURSE THE BEAR IS MISSING AN EYE!
And is that hat crying? And the inane “Okla is (not) OK” thing.
Just fuck you, Fitzsimmons.
There’s been a couple cartoons about one of the manufactured controversies that slipped through the cracks recently, but rather than comment on any of them I’ll just post this. I don’t know who made it, I got it from Ed Brayton’s blog.
