Save The Bristol Press cartoon

My talented friend Justin Skaradosky, a senior at Bristol Central High School and a Tattoo mainstay for several years now, drew this:



Here's a closeup of what future Bristol residents might be getting for news while their city is destroyed:



If you want to see the entire cartoon, you can click here and avoid the Blogger display issues.

Thank you, Justin!

Nice touch, Steve! Very creative!

Who's Justin? Where's the "by line" and "about the artist" information?

You may have caught this in mid-edit. Look at the beginning of the post and you'll find out a bit about him.

You can dozens of Justin's cartoons on the ReadTheTattoo.com website. Just click on the Writer's Index (a yellow box near the top on the right side) and look up Justin Skaradosky's work. He's a brilliant cartoonist.
While you're there, take a look, too, and the cartoons that Joe Keo did, many of them about Bristol.

That's cute.

Do they teach spelling or reading at Bristol Central High? Brad + Angelina = Brangelina. There is no "j" in Brad or Angelina. Perhaps Justin should be paying attention in class instead of doodling. Plus, since when is it beyond the good taste of JRC newspapers to cover, or even lead with, Brangelina-esque news?

He spells pretty good for an American kid.

Go back to your crypt, Jelenic. You are beyond the pale. Deathly pale. Justin is funny and smart, unlike you.

Is that your editor watching TV, Steve?

Thanks for the morning laugh, Steve.
