Victor Vazquez vs. New Yorker

Last month the New Yorker “Cartoon Lounge” blog poked fun at Das Racist’s Wesleyan roots in a facetious analysis of “Pizza Hut Taco Bell”.

Well, DR’s Victor Vazquez ’08 was not amused. Or, was amused enough to challenge cartoonist Farley Katz to a cartoon duel:

Dear Farley Katz,

While I appreciate you taking the time to blog about our viral art-rap song, I’m sorry to say your journalistic approach lacked vigor. When referring to our alma mater, you mentioned “the dean of Wesleyan’s twin monocles,” when it is a highly-publicized fact that Dean Charles Peyton Randolph Cottonbaron has three monocles. I have no idea how this got past the fact checkers. This is lazy journalism, pure and simple. I notice you’re a cartoonist and a gentleman with a history of dueling. I challenge you to a cartoon-off.

Signed,
Victor Vazquez

The challenge? Each combatant drew a day in the life of a rapper, a day in the life of a cartoonist, and a futuristic utopia where racism does not exist.

You be the judge:

Vasquez draws a futuristic utopia where racism doesn't exist.

Vazquez draws a futuristic utopia where racism doesn't exist.

Katz draws a futuristic utopia where racism doesn't exist.

Katz draws a futuristic utopia where racism doesn't exist.

See the rest at the Cartoon Lounge.
