Today’s View From the Bull Pen
Putin and His Preciousssss
Some days you just have to go with silly. Really silly. Of course, the whole story of Vladimir Putin stealing Robert Kraft's Super Bowl Ring is pretty silly. And, I might add, a bit bizarre. This along with the recent news about Putin's divorce and supposed affair with a 20 something is clear evidence that somebody named Vladimir is having a mid-life crisis.

I’ve got a bunch of cartoons in the June issue of Mile High Sports Magazine. This is one of my favorites. Ya gotta see ‘em in print. They’re out now across the metro area .
I also have a Stephen Strasburg cartoon over on ESPN about one of the most amazing debuts in Major League History. It should be live by 9 or so EST.
Hey! Some Super Cool News to share with you tomorrow so be sure to toon back in.
This cartoon is an example of one of the many reasons why I no longer play golf anymore. If you want solitude, the golf course is NOT the place to find it.
This cartoon I think pretty well sums up the state of sports these days. You can’t turn on the TV, surf the internet or buy a paper without Sex Scandals all over the sports section. I’m not quite sure where everything spun out of control but suffice to say, sports will never be the same.
A Few New Items
I’ve started another blog all about comics and cartooning and my life as a cartoonist called Tales from the Looney Pen. There’s a widget in the sidebar. Please check it out. It may not be your cup of tea but I’d love to see all of you join me for some fun over there as well as here.
And in the menu bar at the top of the page you’ll notice DrewTube (I know, I know, it’s corny) which will be a place to see the all of the Webcast archives. I’m aiming for my first webcast this Friday May 14th. Oh, and there should be a cartoon on Friday as well. It will be a busy week. I’m working on a cool assignment for the June issue of Mile High Sports magazine!
Golf is one of the most torturous games on the planet. I think the cartoons I enjoy drawing the most are the ones like this one. I think a lot of people can relate to this one and I love when something I draw connects on that level. I don’t play golf anymore. The insurance company wouldn’t cover the people I was playing with for catastrophic injury. I’ve been known to people with an errant shot or two. I can relate to the infamous words of Fuzzy Zoeller, who I heard tell a gallery at Castle Pines to move back a bit. “Trust me. The way I’m hitting the ball, you don’t want to be standing there”.
This cartoon is from the May issue of Mile High Sports Magazine. Grab a copy if you can. it looks much better in print.
No webcast for today. I need a week to work out the kinks and clean up my studio enough that it doesn’t resemble a scene from Sanford and Son.
Have a terrific and wonderful Mothers day weekend.
I love doing golf cartoons. This one was recently featured in the Chicago Tribunes golf guide. I always have a blast drawing about weekend golfers. I used to be one. But I gave it up because no one would insure me with a driver in my hand.
We’ve made some adjustments in the 9News schedule. I’ll be drawing cartoons for them during the Broncos season instead of the usual twice a week that I’ve been doing. I’m excited to still be a part of the great team at 9News and I think appearing during the Broncos season will allow me to focus the content a bit more, which I really like. I’m so looking forward to drawing more Broncos cartoons! It should be a blast.
This take on Tiger was done for United Features Syndicate. One of the reasons I’m doing so many Tiger related cartoons is the multiple clients I have that need or want one. This was a parody of the (creepy) Nike ad on TV and the Saturday Night live skit. I just thought the scene on the green at the Masters with the Mickelson’s was so amazing. Much like the Drew Brees Super Bowl pictures of he and his son, the images from the Masters will long be an indelible memory of the event years from now.
That said, I still haven’t gotten a Tiger caricature that I’m pleased with.
