A Little More Q&A

OK, this time I'll be more serious.

Q. Paul B said...
Which state and local politicians do you enjoy drawing -- and which do you think you ought to draw more often?

A. Not sure about the "ought" part -- I draw what I see and have thoughts about.

Of the local politicians I enjoy drawing, I like Mayor Mark's thin, angular face and tiny horizontal glasses; I've always enjoyed Simon Leis's great bullet head, especially when he's angry and pink; Tarbell is Christmas morning for a cartoonist; Steve Chabot's big stone head and Jean Schmidt's severe bun are trademarks; I have a file full of Roxanne, though none recently; and I'm still getting the hang of the caricature-defying Ted Strickland.

My nonpolitical local favorites: Nancy Zimpher in red plaid and Bengal warden Marvin Lewis.

Gone but not forgotten: Pete Rose, Marge Schott, Nux, Dave Mann, Norm Murdock, Tom Luken, John Mirlisena, Ken Blackwell, Lincoln Stokes, Sam Wyche, Bob Taft and Jerry Springer.

and Jean Schmidt and Ronald Reagan

You're right, Jean Schmidt deserves two mentions. Reagan wasn't, er, local.

Strickland should be drawn as a bobblehead for his noggin bobbing endorsement of everything Hillary was saying in Ohio recently...what a tool.

Wait, Pete is dead?
