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.

Clinton Fatigue

Ping Pong Balls

The Hillary/Titanic cartoon (several below) baffled enough people that we're not running it in the print edition. The Big Bopper came in scratching his head yesterday afternoon, and my syndicate editor called to make sure he understood what I meant. When the first comment on the blog begins, "I don't get it," that's a clue. I pulled it voluntarily and did the Cunningham cartoon instead.

It was another instance of a dilemma cartoonists have from time to time -- Who Knows What? I thought everyone had heard of the notion of raising sunken ships with ping pong balls (which the cable show MythBusters proved would work!) Seems the idea hadn't spread through the populace as I'd thought. "Why would they want to play ping pong on a sinking ship?" I was asked.

With its instant alert capabilities, the blog may have saved thousands of readers from scratching their heads all day today. If you got the cartoon, enjoy. It's a freebie. If you didn't, count yourself among the many.

On the other hand, I just opened the Slate site and the cartoon (which I had already filed for syndication) is on the splash page of Hillary cartoons. It'll be interesting to watch where this one runs.

Bridge Toll

A reader emailed me this idea, which is a beautiful gift to receive on a first day back from a mini-vacation. Thank you, kind soul, whoever you are.

Vice Presidents Day

I figure the day after Presidents Day must be Vice Presidents Day.

Here's a sampling of my Dan Quayle cartoons. From the moment he stepped onto the national scene as Bush 1's running mate, Quayle seemed not-ready-for-primetime, so I drew him as a stickman with a crayon in my left hand.

It really ticked people off, so I kept doing it.

False Hope

February Q's?

I guess it's the February Blahs (see below), to which I am particularly suseptible, but I can't seem to think of anything to write here these days. Somebody suggested we do a Q&A. So here are my Q's for you:

Is herky-jerky animation the only thing editorial cartooning can look forward to?

Isn't this profession due for a makeover? The last Renaissance was more than forty years ago when Oliphant came to the states (with Rigby, Low and Searle in his suitcase) and reinvented the artform here. Everything's been incremental since. Why hasn't a new messiah come along?

Does color improve an editorial cartoon? Is black-and-white drawing viable on a computer screen?

Is an original still an original if it's significantly manipulated after scanning? Would you still want to hang a drawing on your wall if you know that the artist digitally edited it before publishing it?
