And now...







      ...i did this cartoon on the tenth anniversary on 911...i had read that cartoonist (professionals) were going to do tribute cartoons to 911 for the tenth anniversary...09/11/11...i had just recently decided to become a cartoonist (01/28/11) & chase my dream...but when i read that the pro's were going to do tribute cartoons..i wondered 'how can you cartoon such a sad/tragic/ moment in our human existence ...there was no 'cartoon' for such a horrific moment in all of our lives as we all know ...so i sat there at my table and just let the moment take me.....this is what appeared..looking up from ground zero at the remains of the towers...the loss of us - america - from the peace we all had enjoyed,knew, ...we would never be the same again...i remember being so depressed & sad after i was done with this drawing...so drained,angered & just sad...i realized a cartoon didn't have to be a 'punch line or silly  drawing...i realized like all reflections cartoons are a way to express this place we call human...god bless us all & may we forever be grateful & love each other and remember how preciuos our time is here & now...god bless america.
