I'm sometimes asked what my motivations are for drawing editorial cartoons. Am I trying to convince readers to agree with my point of view? Evangelize? Score points? And the answer is, no ... mostly.
I mean, there is always a small slice of ego that longs to be validated, right? The idea that people read my cartoons and say, "You know, before seeing this I held the exact opposite view, but now that my eyes have been opened by this man's scathingly brilliant observations, I have come to complete agreement! Also, my sides have split with laughter."
