RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Ohman on a busy winter day in 2005, while his son was being fitted for a snowboard rental at the ski shop where I was working. Too busy to really chat with him, I just told him how much I enjoyed his work, agreed with his viewpoints, etc. He asked for a piece of paper and in just a few minutes, handed me a funny, topical (George W on skis!) drawing which I have hanging on my wall.
I always wondered how an editorial cartoonist comes up with such clever ideas - to be able to convey an idea in one panel, with minimal text, and make it look so good? Does he have to research topics, or 'stockpile' ideas? Maybe it just comes naturally.
Thanks, Laura Peterson
