I was asked by the Toronto Star to produce a one-off cartoon strip about the current mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford. It was to occupy the better part of a full page, and unlike The Walrus, I had to write it myself. So I did, and every so often I repeat the exercise. Seven now, all linked below. (Actually, it's eight - but the printing of number seven was postponed a couple of times, and then the theme got overtaken by events so it was dropped. It happens).
There was also a strip during the US 2012 Presidential Race. It coincided with the GOP convention, so that became the subject. I've linked to that here, too.
