Back in the saddle

It’s been hell getting back to work after the holidays. I’ve been trying to catch up on client work at the same time I’ve been in the process of moving a couple dozen sites (including this one) to new servers. So to ease back into posting for 2008, I’ve decided to post a few cartoons that I’ve created for other websites over the past couple years (but don’t worry, fresh content isn’t far off).

The first is this cartoon for?Neil Ducket?based upon his blog’s banner. He won the cartoon as part of a contest over at the?Blogging Experiment. Which is also, by the way, where you can?buy this WordPress theme.?Anyway, here’s Neil’s cartoon:

More is on the way…

News: Spanish Cartoonists Fined

I don’t usually post news here, but I couldn’t resist this. According to the BBC, two Spanish cartoonists have been fined the equivalent of $4,400 each for a cartoon that “vilified the crown in the most gratuitous and unnecessary way.” The cartoon in question, depicted Crown Prince Felipe and his wife Letizia having sex. Felipe noted that, if Letizia got pregnant, it would be the closest thing to work he had ever done (in an effort to reverse a falling birthrate, Spain is paying couples to get pregnant). The publicity is, of course, worth much more than that for the cartoonists. It probably would have been better for the royal family if King juan Carlos had just told the cartoonists to “Shut up!

About our new look

I hope you like the new look. The goals of the new design are:

  • A cleaner presentation with greater emphasis on the cartoons
  • The ability to display the cartoons in a larger format
  • Easier navigation

I hope you enjoy the new look and continue ot enjoy TOONrefugee.
