What Does This Cartoon Say To You?

I could use the feedback.

Underground Cartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.

  1. Sorry,
    I can’t get the cartoon, but good to know you’re still out there. I hope you are catching some good moments!
    I guess it is the devil making us look at the sunny side, or is it something more specific?

  2. That is it!
    I haven’t lifted a pencil in over two months and when I drew this idea I kept adding and doing revisions. When finished I wondered if the message got obscured. Thank you for the feedback.
    I am currently in the process of moving and all my art supplies are packed up. I scrounged up paper, pen, marker and found one red stray color pencil and a yellow highlighter to sketch this out.
    I have family that refuse to look at anything but the sunny side … ignoring other things going on and when I point out “the other things going on” I am called a “hater” … “a laser focused hater”.
    In my career in healthcare I didn’t have the luxury of living in a bubble. I had to deal with what was in front of me while my career ladder climbing friends, family, and careerist followed a well worn path of follow the leader … don’t make waves.

    1. Sorry WordPress isn’t good at passing on these messages!
      Your cartoons sure aren’t easy on the eye, people don’t want to see the message, but giving up is too easy, we have little enough skill, we need to use what we have for some good.
      Fight on Mr Schnell!
