Bruce Plante, the staff cartoonist at the Tulsa World (view more of his cartoons here), speaks to a group about some of his political cartoons at The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
The presentation was part of the Ray and Mary Giles Symposium on Citizenship and Public Service, and gave Bruce the chance to showcase some of his best work from the Tulsa World and his previous job at the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
One of the loudest laughs came at the explanation of this cartoon, commenting on the dirty Tulsa mayoral campaign between Tom Adelson and Dewey Bartlett. The cartoon features two paper bags that are on fire, labeled Adelson and Bartlett, and a voter nervously ready to stomp the fires out.
“If you don’t know what this cartoon means, give me your address,” Plante said.
