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.
