Tribune Cartoon Caption Contest With Guest Artist Phil Ponce

Phil Ponce cartoon 021714

Chicago Tribune cartoonist Scott Stantis invited me to be a guest artist this week, so I came up with the above cartoon (I did the drawing, Scott masterfully added the color and the shading.)

What could one rat be saying to the other in this Chicago alley?  I haven’t a clue, but you might!

So log onto this Tribune link, follow the easy-to-follow instructions, and BAM, you are a part of Chicago history.  (The cartoon will also come out in Wednesday’s Tribune print version.)

Grand WTTW prize?  It’s a doozy.  The winner’s name will be announced next week on Chicago Tonight.  So enter a caption and be in the running to achieve Chicago Tonight glory!

    No, they didn’t airbrush my picture! That’s the best rabid face I could make!

    Chicago Vermin, what a striking name for a professional sports team with rats as mascots! drmrs 2/18/2014

    Well, if push comes to shove we can always take refuge in one of the abandoned school buildings.

    Look closer. It’s a Banksy.
