Monday sketchbook: Holiday mixup
Sometimes a cartoonist has to be careful. Often there's a fine line between a cute little joke and blasphemy (witness the reaction to my Darth Vader PPI cartoon in Meridian). But in dealing with the Nativity, the Wise Men seem to be fair game. This one went a little too close to that line for my comfort, so it stayed in the sketchbook.

Wow, I had no idea that your Darth Vader gag drew up so much controversy over at Meridian. I suppose humor is in the eye of the beholder. Although based on some of the comments you received, I'd suspect that some of those people don't enjoy much humor.ReplyDelete
Today's joke is plenty funny and not on the wrong side of the line, either. Still, I can appreciate you feeling a little gun shy.
