Sketchy Start-Ups
Uber and Lyft threw a tantrum and pulled out of Austin, Texas after voters upheld city regulations requiring background checks and fingerprinting for their drivers. A huge reason for the growth in Silicon Valley is reclassifying labor as “free stuff.” Users create content for free, contractors work without benefits, artists get pennies, if anything, […]

Cut from Commencement Speeches
It’s commencement season, and here in Boston that means there will be a bit more space on the T when the students go home. Read the comic at The New York Times.

Cut from Commencement Speeches


Same Old Party
Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee after last week’s primary. Much has been made about his differences with the GOP establishment, but those differences are mostly cosmetic, particularly of the bottled tan variety. I’m no campaign strategist, but it would probably be a good idea to take every opportunity to link Trump with the […]

Ted Cruz's Path to the Presidency
The primaries are winding down, and it’s pretty clear who the nominees will be. So I wanted to needle Creepy Ted Cruz once more before attention shifts to the general election, which promises to be slightly less interminable than primary season. Read the comic at The New York Times.

More Monetary Makeovers
I’m apparently a huge currency nerd and can’t pass up an opportunity to do a cartoon about it whenever it’s in the news, even during a heated primary season. Read the cartoon at The New York Times. Here’s the one from last year when the Women on 20s petition first gained national […]

A Credible Living Will
Five of the eight largest banks are still too big to fail. Regulators said their plans to wind down weren’t credible and would require bailouts in the event of another collapse. These banks are even bigger than they were in 2008, so the Great Recession Redux will certainly be interesting. Read the […]

The NYC Pandering Primary
New York’s primary matters for the first time in decades, and all of the remaining candidates are doing some campaign pandering in the Big Apple. Events are scheduled in the rest of the state of course, but with 8 million people, and the headquarters of the media, there’s been substantially […]

Backward Bills
North Carolina’s legislature and its Governor Pat McCrory rushed an anti-LGBT, particularly anti-trans, “bathroom bill” in order to protect citizens from the non-existent problem of bathroom fraud. The bill essentially prevents local municipalities from doing decent things like preventing discrimination and raising the minimum wage. Mississippi soon followed with their […]

Brant prep
If you’re in Boston April 5-29, stop by MassArt’s Brant Gallery to look at my cartoons. A lot of effort and beers went into framing the physical prints, and two digital displays will feature more of my work. There’s an opening reception Tuesday, April 5th from 5:30 to 7pm. I’ll […]

Right-Wing Stuntman
Ted Cruz is the Republican Party’s last chance to pull their nomination away from Trump, even though his policies and people skills are just as terrible, if not worse. After the bombings in Brussels, Cruz advocated for policing and monitoring of Muslim communities in the US. If that’s better than Trump’s […]

Absentee Excuses
I previously picked on Mitch McConnell for stonewalling President Obama just hours after Scalia kicked the bucket. McConnell’s Republican pals on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pulling the same crap and refusing to even meet with Merrick Garland. They really have no endgame, this is just obstruction for obstruction’s sake. Read […]

Total Electoral Eclipse
Trump’s malignant shadow is obscuring everything else going on in the world. The ugliness of his campaign and its supporters is certainly newsworthy, but we’ll have a lot of catching up to do if and when the Trump phenomenon fades. I wrote and drew this before Neil deGrasse Tyson proved […]
