Jasper Writes A Blog


I made this cartoon after reading Ken Poland’s recent blog. I’ve really enjoyed writing blogs for Everyday Citizen and have enjoyed reading and learning from the other bloggers at Everyday Citizen. I hope more people contribute and write blogs for Everyday Citizen. As the Everyday Citizen page writes:

Everything that is written here is imperfect and outstanding. Our combined aim is to engage, motivate, or stimulate interaction of ideas and thoughts across gender, generational, and ethnic lines. Our authors often seek to inspire advocacy or citizen action. The power of blogging is that bloggers not only reach out to one another, but this venue can also serve as its own form of activism, a tool to spur action on issues that matter most to the writers and to you.

While very diverse in the their values and views, these authors, story tellers, and citizen journalists share some things in common with one another. They all care deeply about some social, economic, environmental or human conditions in our nation and our world. They hope for positive change and progress. And, they are likely to write about these things that they care so much about.

About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Angelo Lopez has had illustrations published in Tikkun Magazine, the Palo Alto Daily News and Z Magazine. From April 2008 to May 2011, Angelo's cartoons were regularly published in the Tri-City Voice, a weekly newspaper that covers the Fremont, Hayward, Milpitas, Neward, Sunol and Union City areas in California. He does a political webcomic starring his cartoon character Jasper for the progressive blogsite Everyday Citizen. Since December 2011, Angelo does a regular weekly political cartoon for the Philippines Today, a Filipino American newspaper based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since March 2013, he has also contributed cartoons to the Manila Mail, a Filipino American newspaper based in Washington D.C. Angelo is a member of the Sunnyvale Art Club, and the Northern California chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. During the 1990s, he was a member of the part-timer workers SEIU unit in the city of Sunnyvale. Angelo won the 2013, 2015 and 2016 Sigma Delta Chi award for editorial cartooning for newspapers with a circulation under 100,000. He has also won the 2016 RFK Book and Journalism Award for Editorial Cartoons. Angelo won first prize for the Best of the West contest in 2016 and third prize in 2017. Angelo is married to Lisa Reeber. They enjoy taking walks, watching movies and hanging out with their nieces.
