Gadhafi Caricature Gets Around




There you go, ladies and gentlemen, as seen on The CNN website. My caricature of Gadhafi (posted here) was done many, many, many moons ago for the Cox and Forkum site. Now it's back.

My stars, it's seems a catchy caricature speaks the international language of whacky.

ORIGINAL FOR SALE: $325(SOLD FEB 25, no longer for sale)

The first person to offer $325 for the original (6 1/4" x 7", watercolor on paper) on THIS COMMENT THREAD will receive this piece and just a wafer-thin slice of history.

This is not an auction. Only the first positive response is in play. No counter offers.


Robert Tracinski has purchased this original art. This art is no longer for sale.

Kimberly W.:

John, your drawing are really good!

It's amazing to see them on the news, but I am not surprised people are using them.

They really are great.
Good for you John.


So when is CNN going to pay you a royalty for using your picture?


That would go well with my Khomeini and Ahmadinejad.

John Cox:

Hey Kimberly
Thanks for the kind word.

Hey G
Having to deal with a news agency and their stand on images photographers submit is beyond me.

That image is just part of the world, as far as their concerned. Who would I speak to?

Hey Craniac
I hope you'll consider filling out your collection!



CNN censor raked over the coals by a senior editor for letting a cartoon by a self-proclaimed Conservative slip by, which the editor claimed aided & abetted a member of "The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy"...

...which Nancy Pelosi calls an "AstroTurf movement"...

...which raises an interesting question: Which wicked witch of the Left is right?

Dr. Bob:

Brilliant caricature...

the use of which indicates its brilliance,


how small the world really has become through the internet.

Perhaps the internet and wireless phones are really the "new world order".


Cell phones are the New World Disorder. They are an electronic facilitator of abysmal etiquette to both callers and passersby.

Steve M:

I checked it out-any news agency or photographer can use crowd shots to illustrate a story. As long as they re not selling your drawing-you are right-it's just part of the scene in this case.

On the other hand your virtual presence in international mob events for freedom is becoming legendary!


I want your autograph...wait, I don't need it...I've got your fingerprints.

Ha Ha!!.

Very cool. If I had three and a quarter in the cookie jar, I'd be all in.

Have a good day,


John Cox:


Robert Tracinski has purchsed this piece. I'm no longer taking offers.

John Cox:

Just did a Google search for images of Gaddafi. This caricature came up many times. Sadly though I did not have the same results for my Khomeini and Ahmadinejad caricatures.

Hermes Replica Brand Bags:

Moreover, the use of the Hermes Replica Brand Bags can correctly also help hide flaws. For example, a large bag more work for a woman larger than the stock market will look smaller, and a small bag, it would be much larger than it already is.

I thought this was a fantastic blog, not only great writing but it has a great layout, well done.

Dang i thought your blog was killer, gave me a car load of information, i never knew, thanks blogger.

Very nice blog.I like this and will come back very soon.

Dealextreme is nice but focal price is by far the best virtual mall on the internet. It is true that their variety isn't as large as dealextreme's but as far as prices, product quality, customer service and shipping go, they are the best! They have free international shipping and usually ship within two days from the day of order. Another great feature I love about the site that is actually just like dealextreme, is that it allows users to post reviews of the products they bought, and even photos and videos. That is how you can be assured that you but top quality products, because you know you will be able to rate them asweel once you have purchased.

The next time a message on a handbag, designer handbags and wholesale many options available.

Louis Vuitton Handbags:

If the things we love our clothes, properties, are symbols for what we have achieved in our careers, then the bags symbolize the same thing as well – our success.

It is rare to encounter an expert in whom you can have some faith. In the world in the present day, nobody truly cares about showing others exactly how in this matter. How lucky I am to have definitely found such a wonderful web-site as this. It is people like you exactly who make a genuine difference currently through the concepts they discuss.
