The Whitebreads is a comic strip that uses humor to educate about
complex social and environmental subjects.
Most political cartoons lampoon politicians. You won't really see that
It's easy to transfer blame for the state of the world to some far away
politicians (who do only what we all know they do), and ignore the power
we all have to change things through the ways we live. Politicians aren't
causing problems, they are just figureheads trying to convince the public
that they're "doing their jobs", whatever that may mean, while
they do favors for the highest bidder. It is not politicians, but the
way we live and the people we give power to (through the way we live)
that are causing problems.
With The Whitebreads I'm attempting to get to the root of the
problem rather than relieve Americans of responsibility by reassuring
them that they are merely helpless victims of politicians and corporations.
I also hope to illustrate (literally) the connections between issues and
get people thinking in new directions. My big hope is that I can inspire
people who want to change the world for the better that they should continue
their efforts and not give up, no matter how unjust, backward, and pervasive
the consumer culture may seem.

system, and the proliferation of schnauzers have led the world to the
brink of total annihilation.
