My Old Editorial Toons

I found these in a box of old photos. They're two of my editorial cartoons from the late '80s. They're somewhat yellowed but still fun to read.

The backstory is that I'd just given birth to my daughter and was approaching my deadline. So, naturally, I wrote about my maternity ward experience. The editor received a ton of feedback, both good and bad, and asked me to make the next strip about him taking the heat for the toon's content.

My editor was Pat Moser and the newspaper was the Hermiston Herald in Oregon. If anybody runs into Pat, tell him I said "Hey!"
