Joel Pett population cartoons

So....I have the high honor of having received the Global Media Award for cartoons from the Population Institute in Washington four times. This is no doubt due to the fact that of the seven-plus billion humans currently inhabiting the planet, from Trump Tower penthouse to Syrian refugee camp, approximately ten of us draw cartoons about population issues. Much like the titans of industry, I always liked a competition that was stacked in my favor.
