Cartoon: "See No Quagmire ..."

My first cartoon of the year is online (no column from this week's issue). I'm going to try posting the cartoon itself here on the blog.

I'm kind of ambivalent about the art quality here -- Iraq turned out very well, and I like the experimentation with the frames of the panels, but Bush barely looks like Bush. I think I've drawn him so many times (plus so many other guys wearing a suit and tie) that I think I'm just getting lazy. Concept-wise, I like that I worked duct tape into a cartoon, but in retrospect there's kind of a metaphor shift between the panels -- from using the tape to hold Iraq together, to using it to cover his eyes.
