binyamin bibi netanyahu throwing negative ads advertisements boomerang at naftali bennett missing looping around hitting himself in back of head
When the Likud merged with Yisrael Beytenu, most people thought this would guarantee a strong showing in the polls. Instead, the numbers showed the new combined party getting less seats than they did separately, with a good chunk of those missing votes apparently going to Naftali Bennett's Habayit HaYehudi. Several negative ads aimed at him and his party were then aired. Turns out Israeli voters don't really appreciate such tactics, as the Likud has continued to drop as low as 35 seats in the polls (their current strenth is 42) while HHY has risen as high as 15 (up from 3(!)).

My Google cover photo

Hadn't viewed my Google profile for a while, but when I did I relaized that I could add this new content besides my profile photo, so I did. I originally wanted the pics within it to progress right-to-left in order of creation, but I changed that when I realized that a lot of the right side would be obscured by my incredibly handsome mug, so this is a bonus for you so you can see What Lies Beneath (answer: Tefillin Man, pre-DCNu characters playing darts in the afterlife, Ragman eating matzah, and the Drama Llama).

man with black tie white shirt glasses goatee sitting behind desk human resources as you are aware in the wake of recent criticism we at the state attorneys office have been under pressure to hire individuals who can make our investigation and indictment process faster than its current pace fortunately you all qualify youre hired anials sitting on chairs in a row sloth tortoise snail moss covered rock stone
What an absolute bag of crock. The SAO investigates Avigdor Liberman for a dozen years, finally gets around to announcing that it will indict him--and then says it's delaying the indictment to do a bit more investigatin'. Freaking abysmal.
I decided fairly quickly that I had to do a cartoon on this with a sloth, tortoise, snail and moss-covered rock; deciding how to structure and phrase it took a bit longer. I am extremely with the results however.

I knew for a while that I wanted to do something pithy about the 21/12/2012 hysteria. My first instinct was something like me sitting at a drawing board in a field full of sunshine and flowers and whatnot with a caption saying something like "Yup, still here" and an annotation saying that it was drawn before said date. However, I don't use a drawing board and the weather here's pretty cloudy and windy and gloomy, so that was scrapped.

girl weariung boots looking at smartphone well now that december 21st has come and gone maybe we can forget all about this end of the world nonsense man wearing glasses cap and jacket hands in pockets boy running guys i got this mysterious calendar in the mail and it ends on december 31st 2013 that must mean the world ends then we gotta prepare
This final product was drawn on December 21st itself, and it pokes fun at the notion that just because the Mayan calendar cycle ended some nutters thought that this meant that everything else would end as well. Because the Mayans were clever enough to predict Armageddon right down to the exact day but couldn't foresee their own civilization's destruction. Yep, that makes sense.

The sketching process behind my cousin's bar mitzvah table-cards

Feeling bored today, so here's a behind-the-scenes looks at the creation process behind this set of drawings.
First things first, we had to agree on how the caricature should look: cartoony, realistic, detailed, etc. These are the sketches I did based on some photos of him, done roughly in order from left to right:

Eventually the style in the top right was what was chosen. Then came the quick thumbnail sketches of each individual drawing, whose content had been agreed on ahead of time:

In this case, my "client" (ha ha ha) had no editing requests, and so matters continued apace until their inevitable conclusion.
So... yeah, that's how it all went down. Toodles!

A theoretical mega-party combining all the country's top center-left politicians has been bandied about in the media recently, despite the ridiculously slim chances of this ever happening (and by "top politicians", I mean a failed ex-prime minister who has already been indicted and still on trial for other stuff, a failed ex-Kadima leader who accomplished nothing and isn't currently in the Knesset, a failed current Kadima leader who's leading his party down to the threshold level in the next elections, and a completely politically inexperienced journalist/screenwriter). When Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely dismissed the idea as "science fiction", a terrifying idea was hatched in my mind:
the party that critics are calling the smash sci fi hit of the decade teflon man nothing sticks to me bleak whiner evrythings wrong and its bibis fault huh bore god of blunder vot for me im a journalist corporal israel the center lefters coming soon to an election near you avengers parody satire iron man black widow thor captain america
Behold! Ehud Olmert as the man with more closed criminal investigations against him than any other Israeli politician! Tzipi Livni as the super-pessimist who blames Binyamin Netanyahu for everything! Shaul Mofaz as the unaccomplished political laughingstock! And Yair Lapid as the dogged nice guy completely out of his depth! Together, they are the CENTER-LEFTERS. And I am not even sorry

With Muslim riots at a fever pitch thanks to the dissemination by persons unknown of The Muhammad Video and several Westerners already dead, French newspaper Charlie Hebdo (a leftist satirical weekly) decided it would be a good time to put a cartoon of His Prophetiness on the front cover. I admire their courage, if not their intelligence. (Apparently they're unfazed by what happened the last time they published a Muhammad cartoon.)

And what a cartoon! This is one of those cases where all I have to do is let the actual quotes speak for themselves without embellishment, because there's no way I could make them more ridiculous than they already are*. (And in case you're wondering, yes, the Iranian ambassador to the UN actually said this, apparently with a straight face. The mind boggles.)

Mr. Secretary, you can stand on your hand and hold your breath till you're blue, but history--actual, real-world history--carries much more weight than a few piddling decades of don't-rock-the-boat foreign policy.
