doing editorial cartoons

For a number of years I have really enjoyed opening the newspaper and going to the opinion section to look at the editorial cartoon(s). However, I never thought of doing one myself, but upon reflection I have figured out that this is a really interesting venue that I should consider. I've now sent a few editorial cartoons to the Willamette Collegian and have had a couple printed in there now.

The one above is the first that was printed. I was told that I needed to do more college specific ones in the future which is disappointing because national politics or even local politics has so much more to offer and I think is much more interesting.

One in the statesman journal:

I hope to continue to do these cartoons. I think there are some great opportunities that this provides in making statements and that editorial cartoons can play a part in keeping people of power and privilege in check.
