Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at www.zazzle.com/jcrowtherart* (be sure to include the *).

Foxes In the Hen House

In the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, "We have always known that heedless self-interest was bad morals; we know now it was bad economics." (Second Inaugural Address, January 20, 1937) Seventy-one years later it seems that very little has been learned.

Clearly we are going backwards... in every way possible. When did civilization become so uncivilized? Maybe it's just me. Poignant cartoon John... of the times as always.

well, I have decided to issue stock in my art work, then declare my losses and apply to the federal government for a bail out. As CEO, I should be able to get 24 million dollars for 17 days of work. Move over, WAMU, here I come.

Great cartoon, John C.
