Take a look around and sit a spell. Below you’ll find sketches, recent work and other ramblings. “Scribblings” is the tab for you if you want to see my cartoon portfolio.
All my cartoons are available for your publication, website, presentation, cable empire or obscure manifesto. Just ask. Click the “Hello” tab to e-mail me and we’ll work out something agreeable.
The nature of how and where I’m published usually means I trail current events. Not this time.
Here’s my cartoon published in the May 9th edition of Newsday.
On May 14th, Newsday ran a story headlined: “Islanders selling ‘ice’ from final game at Nassau Coliseum”
The lede of the story is, and I quote:
“It may be the most expensive bottle of water in New York.
The Islanders are selling melted ice – i.e. water – from the Nassau Coliseum’s final meltdown before the Isles move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next season.
The cost? Twenty dollars (plus shipping and handling). There’s a limit of five tubes per order.”
It seems to me someone owes me a cut, or a few bottles of “ice”, at least. I’ll wait.
My editorial cartoons with Anton Media placed second and third in the 2014 New York Press Association “Better Newspaper Contest”.
Second Place, from the Levittown Tribune:
The judges said, “Mr. Bodkin created a cartoon with a great attention to detail and a good comment on the over assertiveness of the national television media”.
Third Place, from the Syosset-Jericho Tribune
The judges said, “Well drawn” and “Well done”.
In which I return to the fertile satiric ground of the common core.
“America’s Mayor” indeed.
The second in my “Hazmat Series” offers some suggestions on what and what not to wear this season. I don’t know about the way the vampire is looking at the witch. They may have something going on behind my back.
Our brains seems to have trouble processing the risks of modern life. Deciding to avoid being eaten by cheetahs, we can do. Dealing with statistics, media feeding frenzies and what Carl Sagan would call “baloney”, not so much.
It’s another in my hazmat suit series – and there are more coming. I’m thinking of it as my own personal Cornetto Trilogy.
