Here’s my new cartoon, on graduation with social distancing in the time of the coronavirus. The scene of a graduation with masks and grads, standing on the lawn, at least six feet apart, amused me, but what’s really happening is the graduation ceremonies are being canceled, which isn’t so funny.
Drawing this made my mind wander back to past graduation cartoons.
This graduate lemmings cartoon harkens back to 2008 when there were no jobs for grads. It would be just as true today, if the grads were sitting at home watching TV and falling off a cliff, but I can’t think of how to draw that.
This old student debt cartoon seems to still be good year after year, and seems to be a yahtzee.
Here’s an old TRUE! graduation cartoon that I drew 25 years ago.
