I'm Drawing as Fast as i Can!!!: A New Collection of Cartoons by Walt Handelsman

The Advocate is pleased to present I’m Drawing As Fast As I can!!! — a collection of Handelsman’s work covering the past five years.

Whether Handelsman is taking aim at the foibles of the Louisiana legislature, satirizing the ongoing craziness in our nation’s Capitol, or commenting on international developments, he handles each topic with humor, wit, and political insight.

Walt’s new book will delight readers in south Louisiana and around the country with his unique and poignant take on current events.

Handelsman hits the mark every time!
