I met Doug Bratton at the Mocca festival in New York, and was immediately impressed that in a room full of cartoonists, his sample cartoons were the only ones that made me laugh out loud. I bought his book, and in chatting with the man found him to be a very nice guy. His cartoons have continued to make me laugh consistantly through his website ever since... and occasionally one like the one on the left truly speaks to me. Check out his site. Buy his book if you like what you see. Write your local newspaper if you REALLY like what you see.
In short, support your cartoonists, Y'all.
