As this bubbles up, Pelosi and friends are in trouble.

2010-0611-ateam-chrisI originally was going to use Pelosi and Reid as I had for the Alice in Wonderland cartoon a couple months ago. But then I realized how perfect members of Obama’s administration fit in the A-Team molds.

Get the prize and ignore what it costs to get something free. I wanted to slip in my prediction being correct that the medical stocks would all start to rise dramatically after the health care plan got passed.

Here’s the cartoon on Glenn Beck’s website.

Drawn fast. I felt in good shape this day and I think it shopws in my drawing. Below is the recording of my pencils and inks.

2010-0319-bigocircus-chrisThis is not one of my better cartoons. However, I was hoping I was getting across the efforts of putting this insane health care plan together. What Pelosi , Reid and Obama are trying pull off requires the political skills equal to a contortionist.

This was also drawn quickly. After I scanned the inked version in, I redrew all three faces using Photoshop. I forgot to record me drawing this cartoon.

No health care = Massive losses in November for Democrats and Obama suddenly becomes less welcome at Democrat fund-raising opportunities. Obama can’t have that happen. Appearances are his entire stock and trade. So Pelosi will have to keep her track record in tack and get this through and save Obama from having to figure out what to do if ha can’t hit the campaign circuit.

I was having a bad day when I went at this and basically botched it. While drawing on UStream, viewer Jared Sloger flagged me on the original cartoon, thank goodness. I trashed the first and re-approached the subject very quickly and knocked out the pencil and ink of above. Thanks, Jared!

Below is the stream for the cartoon above:

Below is the first attempt. Please excuse all of my frustration.

Novermer 10, 2009 – Healthcare rammed through
Nov 11th, 2009 by Rob Smith, Jr.


Captain Nancy’s ignore’s the people’s voice and the 9/12 – Tea Party efforts and rams the mess through.

This was one of three cartoons that were going to appear Friday until the Fort Hood tragedy hit the news Thursday night. I pencilled and inked this last Thursday with Photoshop colors added Monday night.

Nancy, just ignore those dark cars following you everywhere.

To see the cartoon at Glenn Beck’s site click here.

She reminds me more and more of my mother, who, as she got older, seemed to be more and more detached from reality. My mother also had trouble getting some sentences out without a stumble or two. I wonder what Pelosi’s medical condition is.

Below is the penciling prior to ink and color. I worked real loose again with the pencils ’cause I was hoping to give the finished art a looser look. In the end, it’s all rather tight. That seemed to work better getting the idea of lighting. I was going to have a yellow glow from the light above Pelosi’s head, but the glow was taking away from the somewhat eerie feeling i wanted.

I essentially have two panels happening. One of Pelosi at the door and the other of something speaking in the shadows.

How do you all think it worked out in the end?
