Year end Cartoon 2017

For many political cartoonists the end of the calendar year is an opportunity to assemble the best of their year’s output for a roundup that will appear in print and online. In the past few years the Baltimore Sun has invited me to create an original piece of art to mark the occasion. ¬†They provided me with a two page spread to fill and this year I took the opportunity to experiment. For the first time I eshewed my traditional watercolors and gouache to play with pixels. I painted an entire cartoon digitally. I suspect that in 2018 I shall be experimenting more with this method.
