Mr. Potato Head

As long as I'm at it, here's a caricature I did of Toronto's new mayor, Rob Ford, who spends his time answering telephones and worrying about five cent charges for plastic bags while putting the city 60 million dollars in the financial hole on his FIRST day in office. (This must be the world record, but I'm not sure whether Bush did anything like this as well.). I swear, he LOOKS like an angry potato.

he is one of the biggest disappointments to have come out of this city.

i think your caricature of him is spot on - though, i always thought he resembled a hot air balloon.

Thank you...and this caricature and the new one will be appearing in the National Post on Jan. 7, 2012. He's good for cartoonists, anyway. I expect there will be a lot more drawings of him once the pain of his 'improvements' to Toronto starts to hit.
