I’m not making the shift to sci-fi and fantasy just because it’s a lot more fun than political cartooning in this age of furious hyper-partisanship (although it is). One of the reasons is a reaction to what this story documents:
Speculative fiction has always been an antidote to the constricted imagination of the flat earth religious zealots and science deniers. Give me the humanistic optimism of Star Trek over the sclerotic pessimism of the reactionary right any day. So, even though I won’t be drawing editorial cartoons per se, I’m guessing some political commentary will inevitably creep into my work. You’ll be able to see it at CosmicLimit.com.
And I hope you enjoy what I come up with.
