Announcing the 2018 LA Times Bond Fundraiser: Hire a Cartoonist for One Cartoon

If you have followed my case defending myself against the libel and wrongful termination by the LA Times that they did us a favor for the LAPD into 2015, you know that they forced me to file a $75,000 cash bond just in order to pursue my claim. Normally when you deposit money, you earn interest. But not in Los Angeles. I have to pay the bond company $1250 every year just to keep the bond filed with the court. No, you’re not allowed to do it yourself, you have to use a private company. So anyway, I’m financially stretched so I am making the following offer, first come, first serve: for $1250 sent directly to my PayPal account, I will draw a 7 1/2 x 10″ cartoon about any subject that you want. Full color. You get the original artwork to do with as you please. You can print it or post it anywhere you want as long as it’s not on some right wing website. And I will send you the high-resolution and low-resolution files. If you have suggestions about how to do it or what to include, I will listen, but I don’t promise to take them.

  1. Wish I could help. But I’m just a broke ass gen x-er who never bought a house, doesn’t have a 401K, etc.

    I can tell you this though, if it get’s to where you’ve just got to chuck it all and get out, I would heartily recommend teaching English in China. I’ve been here for 4.5 years and loving it.

    I teach 11 classes per week, 1.5 hours each. That’s it. 16.5 working hours a week, and I’m able to support myself fine. Nice 21st floor apartment with a view, etc.

    Good Luck
