She grew up on the East Coast and now lives on the edge of Hollywood - what a mixed-up kid. Her cartoons are like nerf balls thrown at pop culture and current events; she delights in idiotic situations to skewer.

She has an orange canary, and collects priceless jewelry.

Barstow's blog posted:

This tweet below, from a man who is one of the best selling single-panel cartoonists in the country - his drawings of big nose, big feet, bug eyes, to go with his obvious gags, must please the most obvious editors, obviously.

I do so many tech cartoons, I figure itís time to get on Twitter and see what itís all about.

Ya think?

This is why single panel cartoons and magazine cartoons are a dying breed. There are many cartoonists like him, using a style they learned 40 years ago, with the same type of 1950ís humor Ė ie, puns, a word twist, easy stuff. No thought or research required. Stuck in their own rut, afraid to try anything new. Whatever works, right?

Iím a pragmatic capitalist, so yeah, up to a point.

But itís not art, and youíre not trying, and you donít care, and I could never call you a good cartoonist. Even though I wish I had your income.

her blog posted:

Some good things happened in May, but I canít think of that many right off the bat. Mostly I was dealing with having my cartoons stolen and used in certain liberal hate websites. I certainly havenít finished with that yet. And then being called the R word (r-acist) in those hate sites. (I told an editor at the LA Times that this crap had happened and that I was being called the ďrĒ word. He said, ďWhat do you mean?Ē I blushed a little (even though it was on the phone) and said, ďr- acistď, and he said, ďOh. I thought you meant Republican.Ē Those wacky LA Times editors! Oh, and it was Tony Pierce. )

* I got Wonkette to stop using my cartoons, after weeks of the most vicious, vile, sexist comments there, in the usual spewing Gawker way. Also, their hotlinking is not cool, and is theft of bandwidth. Actually, I notice Wonkette hardly links to anyone. Great, non-2.0, selfish policy you got there, people.

oh my word no totally not raci-

Barstow on perspective:

Barstow posted:




For Illustration Friday, subject: Perspective.

When I first started cartooning I realized that I knew nothing about perspective. I looked at other cartoonistsí work and was amazed at how they had several things in the drawing, all the proper size!

I bought (easy) books, asked people, but most of all I practiced, and studied how other cartoonists did it.

Eventually, I realized that it. doesnít. matter. But that took years! Itís okay to ad lib, and even better to be spontaneous.

I know there are some artists who naturally think in 3 dimensions. Sculptors, maybe painters, those types of people. But not me. Two dimensions all the way. You could call me Flat Donna, and take me with you wherever you go, and Iíd be happy.

I think it was Mick Stevens who drew an amazing desk in one cartoon, all trapezoid, where you could see the whole surface and it was extended all the way towards the bottom.

Iím still trying to draw that desk. This was a good try.

I also picked this one by Michael Ramirez, the last fulltime opinion cartoonist for the Times. He actually lives here in SoCal. Did anything happen with Israel this week in the news? I donít know. I donít know that much about middle east issues. But I assume Michael does. Sometimes cartoons are used to instruct, or point something out to us, and the Times deserves an international cartoon. I like the design and rhythm in this.

I do think (Ted Rall is) super smart and educated, and does some clever cartoons.

(Iíve seen Ted a few times lately in the LA Times, and even though I live here, Iíve only understood one cartoon out of 4.)

I also see from these intrepid and hard-working cartoonists that Helen Thomas may have spoken thoughtlessly. I had to look up what the White House Press Corps is Ė just the reporters who apparently write down every golden word in all the conferences. I didnít know it was an elite group. Anyway, she said some mean things, and now sheís gone
