SlowpokeBlog 27 Mar/13 For current and future blog posts, please visit my new website, . I haven't quite finished fleshing out the new site yet, but it's mostly-functional. 20 Mar/13 This cartoon has generated predictable comments about being about a "silly" subject. "Educate consumers, don't engage in Prohibition!" This isn't about "controlling" or "feeling superior to" other people. 19 Mar/13 I tried to post this last week, but my server kept choking for some reason. A couple of these drawings were purloined from a series of illustrations I was doing for the Austin Chronicle. I was particularly enamored with the trade show booth of an established HR company called TriNet. 6 Mar/13 I'll be attending my first SXSW soon, with the Interactive portion providing the impetus for this strip.

Part I: A Brief History of Political Cartoons Benjamin Franklin's "Join or Die", which depicts a snake whose severed parts represent the Colonies, is acknowledged as the first political cartoon in America. The image had an explicitly political purpose from the start, as Franklin used it in support of his plan for an intercolonial association to deal with the Iroquois at the Albany Congress of 1754. It came to be published in "virtually every newspaper on the continent"; reasons for its widespread currency include its demagogic reference to an Indian threat as well as its basis in the popular superstition that a dead snake would come back to life if the pieces were placed next to each other [6]. Franklin's snake is significant in the development of cartooning because it became an icon that could be displayed in differing variations throughout the existing visual media of the day-- like the "Don't Tread on Me" battle flag-- but would always be associated with the singular causes of colonial unity and the Revolutionary spirit.

I was thrilled to discover this shout-out from Kevin Kelly in a recent Recomendo. Maker tips: I continue to be impressed by Gar’s Tips & Tools, a newsletter that we co-publish with Gareth Branwyn. I got a big bump in subscribers after this. For years, I saw other people, like my pal Kent Barnes, recommending alignment dots for mindlessly mating a jack to a plug without having to align the exact location or figure out the plug orientation. One of the most-requested projects I get asked about are DIY rolly cabinets for storing portable parts organizer cases, popular among makers.
