Title: The crossing guard
Published: Ventura County Star
Date: June 17, 2003
About this cartoon: New Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas is seen by some as a moderate leader who may finally crack down on terrorists, but in reality he has little power, authority, support or force of personality to actually make such a thing happen.
Noteworthy: Originally I was going to portray Abbas as a sherrif holding a wet noodle, but this final version is much stronger. I like the layout and composition of this, with the encircling bad guys leading the viewer to the stop sign.
