For Day Eight of Inktober 2017, the prompt was, “crooked.” The first thing that popped into my head was the line from Forrest Gump, where the doctor tells Mrs. Gump that her son’s back is crooked as a politician. From there I instantly started thinking of doing a political cartoon, but realized there was no way to do it without ticking off half my followers. Then I thought, What if I tick them all off equally by insinuating that ALL the politicians are crooks?! Then, once again, I thought better of it, and decided to go completely apolitical, and do this sketch of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, instead. This is harmless enough, right? There shouldn’t be too many people on the left or on the right who somehow find this politically offensive, right?
