Artist of the Week: Editorial Comic
Indeed it does, though we do sometimes get some funny mugging.
Anyway a couple of summers ago Jake to a cartooning class up in Richmond. He learned a few of the ins and outs of cartooning and to this day still likes to make the occasional strip. And thus brings us to this week's art.
A few weeks ago Jake had an assignment in class regarding an article he found in the newspaper. I don't know if he was told to do a strip, that is what he did.
Hooray for modern drugs like Tamiflu.
Unfortunately the comic did not scan at all well, so I'll quote the panels for you from left to right, top to bottom.
1.) Today on VCU news, we will look at the topic of swine flu. There are four reported possible cases of it.
2.) Three of the students went home...
3.) While one stayed at his dormitory.
4.) Now we go to where they supposedly got the swine flu.
5.) Ahh!! Invasion of the pigs!
I just love that pig with the laser bean eyes in the final panel. It just cracks me up. I need to get Jake to finish coloring this in.
