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.

Heehee. I like that pawn shop, too. It's too bad your original idea, Jim Borgmam, to have a more artistic exchange (with drawings, etc.) on this blog site didn't work out. Too many irrate screamers lately.

pawn shop is a nice metaphor for the moral, ethical, value bankruptcy of this administration

LOLOLOL Oh man. This one made me laugh so hard I inhaled my coffee. Thanks ALOT!

Yeah, Weekly Cartoonist, I share your feelings. Seems we've settled into a formula with a set cast of characters. Problem is, when I post my sketchbook pages or write essays, they get little or no comment. Any ideas how to shake it up?

Just do it!

The sketches are a great look at your thought process, even if no one comments!

Jim Borgman: I wouldn't take the lack of comments on the sketch books as lack of interest; I imagine people don't know what to add. Interested people (with some reserve) are out here, just not too vocal. ( "The best lack all conviction, while the worst / Are full of passionate intensity" ? Hmmmm... Regarding first part, I hope not.)

Re essays, I feel derelict in not commenting on your thoughts on minorities in comics; I thought that was a complex issue handled really well. I have thought back on it often.

Recently, I thought Terrence sharing his cartoon was refreshing.
Perhaps if other commenters shared their interests (instead of stances) they could complement the original creative impetus of this unique site.

so jim, are you suggesting that if one lacks drawing skills or artistic capability that this is not the place to post.

i thought the purpose of editorial cartoons was to evoke a dialogue.

Jim, no one talks about your stupid sketches because you're ideas are as childish are your cartoons. They don't justify any comments because they're not worthy of any comments.

If this is the same Anonymous as the one who commented on the doomed surge/passport joke, you are making an jerk of yourself; you don't even understand the cartoons.

It's a pity an artist as talented as Mr. Borgman has been reduced to taking potshots at our President.

My question is...will we still be blessed with such witty satire when Ms. Clinton / Mr. Obama lead our nation into a weak, fledgling, socialist depression?

I do hope! - comic relief will be needed in such times.

"Any ideas how to shake it up?"

I'd probably begin by deleting posts from the obvious trolls. It just sets a tone for your blog that drags everything down.

My only suggested improvement would be to try and make your sketch images larger. I sometimes have a hard time seeing the subtlety of some images, but I REALLY enjoy seeing the work-in-progress and then looking at the results.

As for today, the pawn shop was dead on! I still remember W bragging about his "political capital" after 2004 and how we was going to spend it to fix social security and everything else. The only thing he's used it for is to support his hubric quest to get us further involved in Iraq.

Keep up the good work and don't let the trolls get you down.

P.S. I have no artistic talent but know it when I see it. Am I still qualified to post here?
