Thanks SWAHA. Because everyone was already doing a cartoon about this I actually didn't intend to do one myself. It's always such a struggle (and frustrating as you say) to try and come up with an original concept and then finding out it's been done already. But the newspaper is doing a special on the topic, so I had to do one.
Hello everyone,We very often face this issue of strong similarities between cartoons done by different cartoonists. It happened quite a few times to me anyway.. And also on this NYT issue, i had a concept on my mind (then dropped it!) then found it drawn in the newsroom by someone else. It is quite irritating sometimes to draw the whole thing, then post it and find out it has already been done in a very similar way :)That said, high respect to Tjeerd and Pete for being honest with each other. Yes, both cartoons have a similar root concept (and visual), but the end result is somehow different.
Pete is quite gracious, but nice of you for asking Tjeerd
just a note here:the NYT decided to stop running cartoons on its International Edition (ex International Herald Tribune Chapatte was working for)they don't need to stop publishing cartoons on their domestic NYT, because they don't run cartoons anyway
so, whatever the opinions expressed, (rip nyt cartoons, because of trump somehow when the complaits came from israel and jewish groups, censorship, etc), most comments on this site haven't been accurate because of that
it seems they simply don't use and/or don't like cartoons
Magnificent! Great composition Tjeerd
The end result: thanks again, Pete!
Thanks Pete, I appreciate it!
Hi Tjeerd.Thanks for the kind respect you've shown in asking me, and of course I don't mind. It appears that you started your idea before mine anyway judging by the amount of work you've done on it. It's looking great, hoping it does well for you in the paper. Cheers
In my opinion, both have similar idea but different approach. It's not a blatant copying of Pete's idea I think. What do you guys think?
