Kal Lebanon cartoon

Kal economist cartoon 1-20-11web

Last March I had the opportunity to visit Beirut. There I was able to see up close the impressive redevelopment of Lebanon since the war that devastated the country in the 1980’s. I was also keenly aware of the tensions that currently lie just beneath the surface of this beautiful yet potentially explosive land.

My visit helped inform this cartoon that I drew for this week’s edition of The Economist. There is no question that visiting the Middle East has made me feel more connected to the stories playing out in the region.

With the start of the new Congress in Washington DC I was inspired to make this cartoon. I guess I have been around long enough to remember all of these “changes” in Washington.

This week’s Economist cartoon

The Economist goes to press every week on a Wednesday. Which means for 33 years I have been at my drawing board trying to conjure up cartoons for the upcoming edition for the magazine. Fortunately for me, US General Election are always held on Tuesdays which means by Wednesday the results are in(except for that crazy 2000 election).

The US Election results are closely watched around the world and thus make great fodder for cartoons. Above is this week’s rendition. I think the conflict between these two protagonists will likely supply ample material for cartoonists and satirists in the months ahead.

Kal and the British Elections

kal economist cartoon 5-6-10

Tricky drawing a cartoon in advance of a monumental election… for a weekly publication… that will not be overtaken by events when the election results are in… So, here is my best effort for The Economist this week.
