Cartoons are posted below but the most recent one is at least one week late.
Why’s that? Read on.
Recent editorial cartoons by Graeme MacKay are available for viewing (most of the time) at the online site of the Hamilton Spectator. You can also get a glimpse of the most recent work by scrolling down the right side of this page to what’s been posted to his Twitter feed…
Like most newspapers, the Hamilton Spectator is ending its give-away of online content. It’s been a nice 10 year or so free run, but with it has come a reduction in ad revenue and a loss of content providers, namely, journalists, photographers, and… cartoonists. This is probably the last chance to keep traditional newspapers, like the Hamilton Spectator, from completely sinking into the abyss in the transition to subscriber supported digital media.
Look for cartoons posted here one week after publication in the Hamilton Spectator, alongside contextual articles to help better understand the satire behind important issues of the day. Graeme has drawn thousands of cartoons over his lifetime, most of which have been digitized and available for viewing right here! for free! through mackaycartoons.net. Whether you’re a teacher, a student, or an admirer of satire please feel free to share Graeme’s cartoons, but just be aware of his DOs & DON’Ts
