I was originally going to make an animated Newt Gingrich trying to convince Florida voters to vote for him. Unfortunately I started that idea very late in the week and ran into some setbacks. I then tried to work up some similar ideas without animation and eventually came up with what you see here after reading more articles about Gingrich’s ability to knock out ideas left and right but that most of them, although unique, were unpractical and sounded a bit crazy.
My theory is that Newt knows how crazy these ideas are but knows one day they will be possible and that history will look back upon him as the guy who was way ahead of his time. Sort of like a mash up of Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs but with a twisted view of liberty.
Lastly – This is my first ANNIVERSARY of this comic. I have learned so much in a one year and meet amazing creative people online inspiring me with their work. Thank you for a great year.
