After listening to these three excellent podcasts about obnoxious electronic consumer goods, selling out (with some tea party asshole,  Shepard Fairey, Ralph Nader and annoying punk bands); subscribing to the ideas of this guy; and attempting to draw something to build on the ideas of this admired cartoonist, I'm ready to turn the page on national politics for the year.  I was excited to combine and update elements of these previous Tacomics HERE, HERE, and HERE but I don't think I quite nailed it. BLAH, is what I say!  BLAH!  This cartoon just seems really flat.  You can't even really tell that the elephant and donkey are zombies strung up in the classic mussolini/night of the living dead end credits style.  A warm up cartoon.  Something I had to get out of my system.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

  

MEANWHILE... DID YOU KNOW?

Still alot better than alot of the other unmitigated crap calling itself political cartoons strewn about the interwebs.

It's rather impressive just how poignant the Nagging Doubt can be...

I hope you didn't throw that first draft away, I'm now curious.  You could use unseen stuff like that as a sales pitch for your next Tacomic Book.  RARE! NEVER BEFORE SEEN!  COMICS NO ONE WAS EVER SUPPOSED TO SEE!

Heh. Was mostly a struggle with the hand-clasp--making it look less like two octopuses locked in reproductive abandon and the rascal bound patriot kept switching into disney's little mermaid Ursila.  
Even so, Budget update!

the layout is all wrong..  perspective barely dynamic.  no background details...   perhaps the TEA Farty and #OWS are just not ment to be together.

character poses and silhouettes  ugh.

only thing I like is the head and shoulders of the #ows protester
