The CoronaMarket virus


And a few more editorial cartoons, leaning left and right.

Given the focus on the global pandemic, it's easy to forget that this is an election year. But it is indeed, and I'm reminded of that every four years because I get an increase in commissions for political cartoons and editorial illustrations. The political 'climate' is as polarized as ever - and that means diametrically opposed viewpoints on the same issues.

Here are few pieces requested by some magazines and media outlets to accompany articles and stories. I try to cover both of the  very disparate sides of the aisle...(See if you can tell which side each media outlet resided).

  1. We're all exploring new territory here, and with the unknown comes panic - clearly seen in the stock market and grocery stores. Let's hope it doesn't get any worse. Thanks for a dose of the much needed, calming effect of humor, Mark!

  2. Hey Brad - It's certainly a new experience for all of us, and let's hope rather brief. A little humor is always in order, no matter the circumstance. Speaking of that, I enjoyed your blog post discussing Warren Zevon's ability to be funny amidst turmoil, (folks, click on Brad's profile to find it.) It's good to hear from you, and I'm glad you are well.


Let me know if I can answer a question.
