First Editorial Cartoon published!

(dialogue written by Jenny Hamilton)

I recently did an editorial cartoon for a friend's aunt at the Hillsboro, Oregon school district, expecting it only to be viewed by the school board and the PTA/district employees.  However, I got a call yesterday from the Editor of the Hillsboro Argus (a local newspaper) asking permission to post it online and run it in their Friday Paper.  It was an unexpected, but welcome surprise :)

Apparently the cartoon and the campaign it supports have been having a positive effect, last night the school board voted on a new grading policy that will give students a better environment to grow and succeed. Woot!


  1. Ooh, "scientific illustrator," huh? ;)

    What a good-looking cartoon! It's nice that you gave at least one of the board members a sane and concerned look. I also really like the little dude jumping off the prow.

  2. Thanks! I'm glad his expression read that way, it's what I was going for :)

  3. This turned out really great Josh! I haven't talked to my aunt since she requested this sketch, but I'm sure she was thrilled with the work.

    1. Thanks! From our conversation she seemed to like it :) Thanks again for giving me the opportunity!
