OPEC

This is one of the detailed editorial cartoons I drew in 2005. With oil price increase going wild now, courtesy of our beloved oil companies and of course the helpless government, this drawing holds semblance to our current woe. I don't blame the OPEC if they want to make profits from Earth's non-renewable resource - fossil fuel. They make profits (see the dollar element) out of it while we bear the brunt of their exploration and continued exploitation.

wow! u'r an excellent editorial cartoonist!

I once dreamt of being an editorial cartoonist. but the wind brought me to different path which is writing (now, I shifted into being a fulltime housewife, hehe).

Your works really amazed me... you are a gifted one. very talented, indeed.

fczamora @ dienn's comment: thanks. that's a spirit-boosting comment from you. yeah, more often we take paths different from what we wanted before. i wanted to become a lawayer but ended up as a project analyst, cartoonist, graphic artist and small or struggling entrepreneur - rolled into one :-). perhaps, the best lesson we can have is to do the best with whatever we have...
