'Tis the season for my first new cartoon in a few months! It's good to be back (if even for just one week) after my brief hiatus. I'll try to get back to weekly postings again in 2020. For now, though, here's a little holiday treat.

Obviously this was inspired by the recent swath of fires in the Amazon, but this isn't just a Brazil problem (there are also massive waves of human-set fires in the Congo, Indonesia and other parts of the world), nor is it just a fire problem (we're destroying so much else, in so many other ways). But it all adds up, and it's all...not very smart.
Here's hoping my next environmentally themed cartoon touches on something a wee bit less despairing!

this essay I edited for The Revelator about sports teams using endangered species as their mascots (but not sharing appropriate conservation messages about those same species).
What other sports teams and mascots could be rebranded for conservation purposes? I've got a few ideas.
The Green Bay Packers could become the Green Bay Pachyderms.
The Chicago Cubs would change their name to the Chicago Grizzlies, while the Bulls would become the Chicago Tamaraws.
The members of the New York Yankees would soon play for the New York Yellowhammers or the Clubshells (a type of mussel).
The Boston Red Sox would have a lot of choices: the Boston Red Wolves, Redwings, Sockeyes...the possibilities are endless.
The New Orleans Saints could be the New Orleans Gopher Tortoises (a local species).
I could go on...but I think this is a good start!

Okay, this one isn't so much a gag as a nice piece of art/introspection, but I'm glad to finally get it posted.
True story: this was one of the first ideas that I sketched out when I started drawing cartoon ideas en masse back in 2012. At the time, I was stupidly using a ballpoint pen and filling up a notebook that had ivory-colored pages. Some of those ideas were both good and fairly well-drawn; I could have scanned and posted them right away except the ballpoint didn't create very good lines and I didn't know how to whiten the scans of those off-white pages.
Well, I finally figured out how to resolve that second problem, and this piece is about a ball-point pen, so up it goes -- just a few years after I drew/wrote it.
And there I wrote ten times more words than the drawing contains in order to explain the drawing. Remind me not to do that again!

I'm sure I'm not the first cartoonist to think of this "Kilroy was here" riff about Trump's border wall, but I had to sketch this out once it popped into my head. (I probably should have made the handwriting bigger and more florid.)
