Stuart Carslon's Cartoon Genius Is Now Online

Stuart Carlson's cartooning is no longer carried in the Journal Sentinel, but he's created a website that brings you his work.

Funny that Stuart sent me a note about his website, as I had just been reading through a book of Herb Block's cartoons that my folks had passed along to me.

My Dad and Block were colleagues at the Washington Post, so I was raised on the very best political cartooning and Carlson is certainly in that upper echelon.

The cartoonist has to have a sharp mind, pen and vocabulary. It's a rare combination and I'm really happy that Carlson can now get his work on the web.

My favorite Carlson was his cartoon of Scott Walker's vision of transit (2007). It came out after a hilarious Walker moment of confusion and ignorance about transit -- when he said his goal was to make sure everyone had a car.

In the cartoon Walker's on the Marq Interchange, bumper to bumper, jampacked with cars. Walker says "I call it 'no vehicle left behind'!" Brilliant.
