Yes, they’re back–after two years of the artist (Kaf) scrambling around trying to find a stable place to get his head together and actually make these cartoons.
“Kaf” will try and keep these cartoons coming in on a regular basis. If they don’t come that means there’s trouble in keeping the money coming in and the artist is out hustling his ass to stay alive (or, like in 2019, living in a shithole called Green House Berlin, a so-called “artists’ commune” where virtually nothing gets done artistically, and fights, freakouts, overdoses, swindles, shitty orgies and the like are regular occurrences).
The ink drawing above is actually pretty old–about three years old, to be exact. But it is still 100% relevant. While a civil war is brewing on the American home front, meanwhile actual physical wars (started by the US) are still going on abroad. People are still getting killed, no matter what the media likes to pretend…

Here he is, folks, everybody’s favorite fascist fuckwit…whose ascendancy to the highest seat of Brazilian power coincides with the burning of the nation’s national archives, the loss of indigenous languages (and a hole in the national memory, to be filled with more idiotic telenovelas, more dope, more racism, more white supremacist greaseball idiots like the bitch I ran an intellectual train on earlier this year)–and still more tragically, the loss of Brazilian lives to drug cartels and maniac cops. Bolsie’s job, of course, is not to reign in either the cops or the killers, but cut a deal with them so that his hold over the country (and, eventually, what’s left of Venezuela) can be further consolidated.
What’s next? The wholesale destruction of the Amazon rainforest, naturally…leading to the eventual termination of all human life on earth…thanks to our old pal Bosie, proud descendant of Portuguese settlers and all-around wise guy who glorifies dictators and hit squads, and who would rather string up his own son than see him kiss another guy on the lips. Bosie…A helluva guy.
Sorry that I’m more than a day late, and definitely more than a dollar (or a euro) short.
Economically September was very hectic.
In addition to this, it looks like Amazon is trying to censor my fucking novel–at least on American Amazon: when you type in “P. Lewis Nate” nothing comes up.
But in this super-reactionary political and cultural climate, nothing surprises me anymore.
I have a number of blog posts in preparation. Not too many people will see them, as not too many will probably view the blog posts of other bloggers such as The Angry Indian because (apparently) our views on Alexa have taken an inexplicable nose-dive since this August. I naturally suspect political bias, of course.
The cartoon below is one drawn some months ago, but since Melania is going to be Melania–she’s in the news again for wearing colonial-style gear in Africa–I don’t see why Kaf needed to draw a pith helmet on her fat head.
This is the first from “Kaf” in what will be a monthly series of cartoons satirizing contemporary so-called “civilization.” Be forewarned that Kaf’s vision will be unrelentingly cruel–much less like Oliphant, or even Ollie Harrington…and more like George Grosz. Kaf has an entire war-chest of fiendishly cold-blooded observations coming up, so stay tuned.
Kaf had to go after the Orange Orangutan for his first hit. Why he didn’t have the fat bastard battling tweets rather than airplanes is anyone’s guess. But we all know that the motherfucker just can’t close his mouth to save his soul.
