Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Like Anything Here?

Good ones! Cellphone lane. I live in Orlando and I think it's a prerequisite to have phone in hand once behind the wheel. I'd welcome a lane like that.

The HMO idea would be even funnier if the HMO guy's hand was much larger.

That nursery says a lot.

I like the Ansel Adams gag -- although you could use Joe Rosenthal cell-snapping the Iwo Jima flag-raising, too. Granted, more folks know Adams.

That's a lot of ideas!

Oof. How embarrassing: I recently drew a graduation cartoon where a kid who looks rather wild -- earring loop, eyebrow ring, etc. -- is commenting on the commencement speaker to the girl grad beside him: "'Live life to its fullest'? That's what they've been telling me NOT to do."

In my haste I wrote "be" not "been". And they printed it!
Jim Borgman, has anything like this happened to you?

Jim, you really have moved more towards non-political cartoons and more toward slice-of-life commentary.

or Norman Rockwell taking a cell picture of the famous Thanksgiving dinner painting.

i like the hmo one but the enquirer would never print it.

my fav is the top one! candidates are everywhere! I think to the HMO cartoon you should add Michael Moore standing behind the HMO guy, his movie comes out this week and it should be all over the news.

They are all good. I would rank my top three as:
1) Ansel Adams (also like the Iwo Jima idea)
2) HMO
3) Cell Phone

I loved the Ansel Adams shot.
I think it speaks to not only our shift in ideas of art, but the mediocrity that we are willing to accept as good art.

Plus it's just flat out funny.

I like the cell phone one.
