I confess that when Eric Devericks first started as the Editorial Cartoonist for The Times, I was not one of his biggest fans. (Following in the footsteps of award-winning Dave Horsey over at the Post-Intelligencer didn't help.) However, his Media-Dog-Chasing-It's-Tail was so insightfully crisp both in its humor and its delivery that I had to send him a note of appreciation and post his cartoon on my blog for posterity! (Get it? Ha Ha) Anyway, I wrote an e-mail to Eric this morning and got back a terrific reply. Editorial cartoons are a tough act, especially in a liberal town like Seattle and you're starting off at a young age like Eric. I think he's going to keep improving with age!
