The BP Oil Spill in Cartoon Form

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has completely dominated the news. There are so many aspects and details to this story (and so much of it is ridiculous), which means an infinite source of fodder for cartoons.

I've had a few in The Daily Universe, but the Issues & Ideas page can't fit all my ideas. (Especially when some of those ideas are a little outdated.) But, that's what a blog is for!

So here it is, my collection of BP oil spill cartoons.

My first time cartooning about the oil spill was for the spring's first (and only) Daily Universe Caption Contest. To see the caption that won, go here.

Published in The Daily Universe, June 3, 2010.

This cartoon also goes well with this article.

I of course had to combine the England vs. U.S. draw in the World Cup. I came up with two ways to do it; the one above was the one that made it in the paper.

Robert Green and Tony Hayward have something in common these days.

A little outdated now, which is why it didn't make it in the paper.

Granted, Carl-Henric Svanberg doesn't speak English as his first language. But it seems like what he would have wanted to say instead wouldn't have been much better.
