Title: Heavy backpack
Published: Ventura County Star
Date: Dec. 11, 2002
About this cartoon: California is facing a massive budget deficit -- $21 billion to as much as $30 billion. Gov. Gray Davis needs to cut expenses to balance the budget, and primary education is looking at being a target of major cuts.
Noteworthy: I like the way I drew the backpack, but I kept getting coaching from my editorial page editors about the proper placement of the zippers, and had to modify the art a couple times to address their concerns over the zippers. Colorized for the Web.
