My Take on the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Travesty

As a caricature artist I’ve drawn many thousands of kids – particularly young tourists from the northeast – since 2005.  Recently at the Sailfish Marina on Singer Island (Florida), I counted a number of childrens from Connecticut as having caricatures done. That’s because I always ask where they’re hailing from.

I conceivably could have drawn one of those children, though I’ll probably never know this. One thing is certain, however: I will never get to draw them now.

This is MY take on this senseless debacle.

Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Baby? Meet “The Tot-inator”

Given the ongoing tempest over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recently-revealed extra-curricular activities, Captain Cartoon has posted his second Schwarzenegger cartoon commentary. A devout fan of Arnie and his Terminator movies, the Captain is not taking these drawings, or the issues, lightly.

Drawing on his tabloid (Weekly World News) roots, Captain Cartoon (aka Dick Kulpa) immediately pondered as to what the “love child” looked like.  A quick sketch during a marina caricature stint brought howls of laughter from curious onlookers, but the Captain, after some considerable soul-searching, felt the newly-discovered son to be a total innocent in this case.

Likewise, Maria Shriver seems to have done nothing but right during her marriage to the Terminator.

As for Arnold Schwarzenegger himself? No problemo!

Rather than ponder as to what an Arnold Schwarzenegger “love child” might look like, the Captain instead chose to imagine Arnold himself as an infant.

In fact, the thought did occur: As a plot device for the next terminator spin-off, Arnold’s T-101 could get it on with the Terminatrix from movie 3 and create their very own “Tot-inator!”

Caylee Anthony Memorial Portrait Posted on Web

This memorial portrait of two-year-old Caylee Anthony has been posted on Caricature artist Captain Cartoon’s website.

The South Florida caricature captain has drawn nearly 20,000 caricatures of younger girls during the past seven years, and says he’s come to see all little girls as angels.

“Without passing judgement on guilt or innocence of Caylee’s mom, I felt people needed some sort of feelgood image associated with little Caylee” said the Captain, co-producer of the teen girl-oriented Starlette Universe. “I have two daughters and a granddaughter myself. I recall them at Caylee’s age — they were total angels.”

Mother Casey Anthony’s murder trial is expected to begin Monday, May 9.

Captain Cartoon has no intent on marketing the image, and if any proceeds were ever to arise from it, all would go to child abuse prevention charities.

Alternative Osama bin Laden “Death” Pix for Folks Hot to See SOMETHING . . .

Captain Cartoon has posted his own interpretation of Osama Bin Laden’s face as it might have looked during the SEAL raid on his compound. One image reflects his looks when he first laid eyes on SEALS, and a second Osama image shows him after he was put out of his misery — at least as per the Captain’s interpretation.

President Obama’s decision to categorically NOT release the Osama death photos “is in all probability the right move,” says the Captain. “But I felt all those people waiting to see ‘something,’ needed something.”

Keeping in mind that Captain Cartoon’s caricature site is “family friendly,” the Captain did exercise some discretion in posting this imagery.”These are somewhat ‘sanitized,” he admits.

Along with these images is his latest royalty-free Obama-Osama cartoon, swiftly drawn and uploaded immediately after the death of Osama bin Laden was announced. Plus, royalty-free cartoons showing Donald Trump in superhero tights and Charlie Sheen in a “Whiners” T-shirt can also be seen.

All these images, and more, can be seen here.

Captain Cartoon Unveils Commemorative Charlie Sheen Caricature

BOYNTON BEACH — South Florida caricature artist Captain Cartoon just released his latest celebrity caricature!

Charlie Sheen takes the spotlight in yet another celeb sketch by the Florida caricaturist, in a digital drawing requested by long time friend and former CRACKED Magazine writer-cartoonist Terry Copeland.

“Charlie had it coming, that’s for certain,” said the Captain, who lamented that he should have done this two weeks earlier. “Better late than never,” he added. Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, Shaun White, Justin Bieber, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and others have also been etched into “Captain Cartoon immortality.” Moammar Ghadafi most recently made the cut, as did Donald Trump.

Sheen’s  been making waves recently over a number of seemingly endless squabbles in an almost “Andy Kaufman-like” scenario. “I expect this image, featuring reminders from Sheen’s recent tiffs (provided by Copeland), will stay timely for some time, and I’ll be adding more as he continues to erupt,” says the Captain.

Captain Cartoon, aka Dick Kulpa,  is former publisher of CRACKED Magazine, former editor of Weekly World News, and the creator of Bat Boy. He’s drawn well over 30,000 caricatures in South Florida alone, and recently launched his “Captain Cartoon Celebrity Caricatures Crusade.”

“Eventually, celebs won’t be complete unless they’ve been caricatured by Captain Cartoon, quips the Florida cartoonist, illustrator of the Starlette Universe feature.

Have YOU been “Captain Cartooned” yet?
