Overdue Police Reforms
I drew this after video of Officer Slager gunning down Walter Scott in North Charleston, SC came out, but before video of Reserve Deputy (Kind of like a police cosplayer, but given an all-too-real firearm.) Robert Bates shooting Eric Harris in Tulsa County, OK was made public over the weekend. Surveillance of the police is a […]

Overdue Police Reforms


Business Supplies for Bigots
Indiana’s disastrous “Religious Freedom” bill gave companies even more rights to discriminate than the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision. I had no idea florists and bakers were so prone to bigotry. I’ve gotten some randos in my Twitter mentions saying “B-B-BUT, you’re the bigot!” Calling someone a bigot, or even […]

Water Warnings 1
While we’re finally saying goodbye to record snowpack in New England, there’s virtually none in California this spring. And for a state that’s in the middle of a years-long drought, that’s bad news for the water supply. Unless you’re in agribusiness. They’re exempt from Gov. Jerry Brown’s mandatory water restrictions, while […]

Keeping Currency Current
There is a long overdue movement to get women featured on our paper currency. For too long they’ve been relegated to our country’s lame attempts at dollar coins that are too similar to quarters (Thanks, Big Vending Machine!). I can go on and on about currency policy, so I’ll just point out […]

Ted Cruz's Campaign Swag
Ted Cruz is not dumb. He is playing into the willful ignorance and victimhood that riles up the base to win elections. By a weird twist of fate, it has become my job to draw cartoons about current events. I am not a news junkie, but I must ingest news constantly to […]

Death Penalty Dissonance
Since lethal injection drugs are becoming scarce and no longer efficient at the whole “lethal” thing, Utah’s getting ready to bring back the firing squad, while other states are dusting off their electric chairs and gas chambers. Somehow these are all more preferable than calling off capital punishment altogether, which often results in […]

Death Penalty Dissonance



Grand Old Pen Pals
I don’t think Senator Tom Cotton’s open letter to Iran was treasonous; it was dumb. And unfortunately for the US and the rest of the world, being dumb isn’t treason. It’s practically a requirement for anyone who wants to court the Tea Party caucus. It’s spring (or so I’ve heard from under […]

McDonald's Is Getting Healthy
McDonald’s is eliminating antibiotics from its chicken, and trying to market itself as a healthy place to eat gray slabs of beef which presumably will still be pumped chock full of antibiotics and who knows what else. I hope I ruined Shamrock Shake season for all of you. Read the […]

DIY Health Insurance
Last week the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in King v. Burwell and now we’re waiting to see if they’ll gut the subsidies in the Affordable Care Act because of one poorly worded sentence. Chief Justice Roberts kept it alive the last time it was challenged, but now that it’s fully functional, […]

Are you tired of waiting to read my one, or two, at most, cartoon(s) a week? If so, you’re in luck! I’ll be posting five (5!) exclusive comics this week for The Nib’s newsletter and Instagram account. Will I draw something smart, cutting and insightful about something in the news, […]

America at War: With Bill O'Reilly
Bill O’Reilly was caught in a lie. No, not that one. Or that one. Or the whole sexual harassment loofah thing. This is not really news. Brian Williams being a fabulist was a little more surprising, but not really. Network and cable news are pretty much infotainment anchored by narcissists. […]

In Search of ...
In honor of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away today, here’s a throwback to a Strip I did featuring him way back in 2012. He’s obviously remembered as Spock, but he did a bunch of other stuff. My earliest memory is of his voice at Boston’s Museum of Science. It is forever […]
