Exceedingly frustrating day.

This week I seem to banging my head against the wall to squeeze cartoons out of my brain. Every idea has been a struggle and nothing has come easy. Luckily I had a ton of coloring to do for Sunday's State Journal cartoon so the day wasn't totally wasted (I know right it's ridiculus, my job entails coloring like a five year old). I'll post that State Journal cartoon later. But it was a real struggle to formulate that idea.

Today I pitched my editor at least 4 different cartoon ideas about a Madison Alder who was in the vicinity of what a cop thought smelled like burning marijuana in a Madison bar. The sight of the alder, Mike Verveer, startled the officer and she left before investigating the pot smell any further. Verveer has some lame excuse about getting over a cold and not smelling anything that night, and he adamantly denies any wrong doing.

Anyway here are the ideas I pitched that all got canned. I thought they were good, but maybe I sprained my funny-bone this week.

Maybe you've lost your touch. Why don't you get a respectable job like a Fire Fighter so you can actually help society instead of printing your garbage.

Why are you making fun of the firefighters they are good people? Who do you call when you need help?
