I like cartoons allovasudden...this one too.
Izit yours?
I don't wanna offend...but no signature, and why not? Someone is going to steal it...
I like the train: the hand behind the anonymous body about to delivery the message to 2008 face...itiz our hand, people.
You might think it is the arresting hand, but anonymous gets off 2 shoes before he is downed by itiz the viewer's hand.
Ok, Brenda, if you can tell me mo...I'll tell you mo.

It's a cartoon I did, Calmo. I often forget to put a signature on my drawings and paintings.
The hand behind the shoe thrower may be a second symbol (the first being the surprised look on 2008's face) of something quite unexpected and threatening. Like 'change' coming.

It's not so much an arresting hand as a surprised one; the immediate response is to try and hold change back.

On the other hand, the sketch was done in 3 minutes and, at the time, I really didn't think much about every single element of the drawing. But now that I have.... ;-)
