The Friday Cartoon

Welcome to our Friday Cartoon. This weekly feature is drawn by Portland-based illustrator Mark Markovich with inspiration from the week's headlines and input from the BikePortland Editorial Team.


Friday Cartoon: On Williams, we want justice

Friday, July 29th, 2011

NOTE: 5 and 1/2 years later, I have decided to delete this cartoon because now I fully understand how inappropriate its contents were. In hindsight, I regret publishing it. I’m sorry to everyone that was offended by it. — Jonathan Maus, 2/10/17.
