I worked at National Geographic in Washington, DC, I worked at National Geographic in Washington, DC, for 8 years.

Even though illustration and cartooning are more of my passion, I like to think I picked up a thing or two from the photographers there.

Now I know I have. In fact, I now know I have vastly superior abilities, especially in the area of wildlife photography. Case in point — this photograph. Who else can say they’ve captured a giant pelican attacking a great white shark trying to eat a tuna?!

Not even @kaigner has snapped a photograph like this award winner.

I have to wonder. As I sat in front of my red toy I have to wonder. As I sat in front of my red toy television to watch the Putin Apology on my television network, I’m confused by this man’s marshmallow-ey bottom lip, third-grade-boy vocabulary, and his thick South African accent. It’s like the writers and producers of this segment experimented with dodgy software that they found on the Internet and wrote the first bit of dialogue that came into their juvenile brains.

Still this video is real, because it’s on the Internet.

I do love hipster-infused culture.

Activated almonds sprinkled on my sun-drenched mocha bean latte. Riding my penny farthing to my job as an earth-first mountain bike mechanic and a paddock-to-plate influencer.

I can only dream.

Hipster-ville has so many hyphenated adjectives describing and spruiking something that is pretty basic and maybe even mundane.

But beware: if you see a street-inspired wall tag like the one in this image, your wallet is entering an area of high-hipster profit margins.

In this cartoon, this is what my search algorithm has in it, these types of searches.

Everyday I think: 

I’m so lucky that I know my data is NOT being collected and harvested and sold to the highest bidder. 

And I’m so glad my government is seen as a formidable and benevolent partner, making sure storage time and analysis of my everyday inquiries are kept ephemeral.

Anything else going on in the world?

Here’s Prince Charles, or as I like to call him Here’s Prince Charles, or as I like to call him the Brother With Sweat Glands.

I’m slowly getting back into caricatures. Though, they’ve got to have a face worthy of my time. Chuck here has numerous features that got me interested: those sad eyes, the droopy jowls, and of course, the nose like a laundry shaft descending down his face. 

Kudos to QE2 and Prince Philip for this guy. Not so much the other one…

My 13-year-old daughter is becoming a delightful F My 13-year-old daughter is becoming a delightful Francophile - learning French at school, seeking out French stories (The Little Prince, City of Lost Children). 

So I decided to a make an illustration for a kid’s story, one set in France, an illustration she could use to begin a story of her own. Here that is.

Now it’s her turn to write a story for the drawing.

I said to my daughter that I was planning to title my story, “Postcard from Karen Baguette in a Yves Saint Laurent Sweater Just After Getting a Ticket at the Foot of the Eiffel Tower.”

“No, ça craint le cul,” she said. Roughly translated, “That title sucks ass.”

Fair enough.

Damn. I hesitate to think what kind of kids story she’d write with a mouth like that.

I’m prognosticating here. But with all the celeb I’m prognosticating here. But with all the celebrity tequila companies and perfume deals, I can see the writing on the wall. Everyone wants to pad out their 401k. So why not grunge gods?

‘Early Retirement’, is an eau de toilette from Eddie Vedder. 

It doesn’t smell like Teen Spirit. More like flannel and saw dust.

I never knew how much my choice of abattoir was so I never knew how much my choice of abattoir was sooo influenced by whom I trusted on social media. 

I thought I was acting of my own free will with my selection of slaughterhouses. 

How foolish I was!

In this exposè, “Influencers & Abattoirs”, I examine my own failures and point fingers at the influencers constantly discussing beauty treatments needlessly in abattoirs worldwide. 

Billions in back-door payments and no attribution or oversight.

Scandalous.
