Just Some Illustrations I’ve Done Lately

I’ve been trying to do more of my own illustrations for my feature images lately, and since I’m experiencing a bit of writer’s block today I thought I’d take a few of the ones I like and make a little article out of them for anyone who wants to take a look.

As with all the rest of my work, any alternative media outlets or bloggers (or anyone really) who want to use my illustrations for their feature images (or for anything else) are free to do so if you want some free artwork. I try to remember to put a “Caitoz” signature in the bottom corner so people can tell they’re free to use.

  • Talented observer, talented writer, talented artist! Thank you for sharing your talents with the world.

  • You have a future as a political cartoonist. Your illustrations are outstanding….

  • Hey, cool, it’s like going to a Caitlin art gallery. It’s a slightly different experience looking at the image first and thinking about it out of context. But then I clicked on some of the articles to remind myself of the context too.

    Perhaps another idea for a dry spell would be to publish a repeat of an article that may be particularly relevant on that day, or just one that bears repeating. Although, they may all bear repeating. Perhaps have people vote on a favorite.

    Or you could publish a blank page, just so commenters could post comments with nothing being off topic. “Teacher’s out, everybody write on the chalkboard.” Or maybe that’s what Twitter is for. I don’t have a Twitter account, so I can’t engage there. I just read a few Twitter feeds, like Caitlin, Glenn Greenwald, Aaron Maté, Michael Tracey, and Jill Stein.

  • Very Enjoyable Montage! Thank You! Caitlin C000000000000L! with a Smile ~ Greg

  • Brilliant! Insightful! Bold! *TRUTHFUL* Keep it coming, Caitlin! We, The People of the World are waking up to all the misdeeds, insatiable greed, and psychopathy of the Criminal Corporate Class Cabal.


  • It’s OK to wait for inspiration, Sister Caitlin. Few enough do.
    I keep thinking about the changes we are about to do. I have long known we would not live like the Jetsons, and what we have already come to is painful. Biking, gardening and compassion meditation help.
    Change comes through mechanisms. The steam engine was a means to facilitate many changes, which have overwhelmingly shaped the world we inhabit. It’s running out of steam, but we don’t know what mechanisms we might employ to live with less burning of fuel, and mining of ore, and plastic packaging.
    Wide ranging global quarantines for 3 years would sure change things .
    What would I do at home for 3 months? In about a month, the flow of Chinese manufactured items to US ports will start to reflect manufacturing disruptions now taking place. What if the car or airplane you make requires 7 Chinese parts?
    Will you burn less gas sitting at home? Do you need a new car or iPhone? Do you have vegetables to go with those beans and rice? Do you have fuel, water, electricity, phone, internet? Can you trust knocks on the door?
    Really consider what your community will be during and after 3 months of lock-down, and with that lock-down moving around the world, too. It will be martial-law, but how functional? How dysfunctional? What kinds of dysfunction?

  • Dear Caitlen,

    Thankfully, you are not a machine, so take a break anytime you need to. An extended one if necessary, we can all run out of steam. You are already going to get my subscription because of all the work you have done to date. It’s a huge mountain of really excellent stuff I will be drawing from for decades probably. If there is more however, keep it coming, once you feel it’s OK to write it. Whatever makes you comfortable with the big world around you.

    Lovely illustrations btw. They mix in well with your words One of my favourite books is Ashley’s Book of Knots, and he used to do all his own illustrations too. We just have to remember not to get over tied into our own knots !

  • Amazing work, Caity.

  • nice work. peace to you, and be well.

  • You Go, Girl!

    “The world at present is full of angry self-centered groups, each incapable of viewing human life as a whole, each willing to destroy civilization rather than yield an inch. To this narrowness no amount of technical instruction will provide an antidote. The antidote, in so far as it is a matter of individual psychology, is to be found in history, biology, astronomy, and all those studies which, without destroying self-respect, enable the individual to see himself in his proper perspective. What is needed is not this or that specific piece of information, but such knowledge as inspires a conception of the ends of human life as a whole: art and history, acquaintance with the lives of heroic individuals, and some understanding of the strangely accidental and ephemeral position of man in the cosmos—all this touched with an emotion of pride in what is distinctly human, the power to see and to know, to feel magnanimously and to think with understanding. It is from large perceptions combined with impersonal emotion that wisdom most readily springs.”
    Bertrand Russell, “Useless Knowledge”

  • Thanks Caitlin, when you have enough to publish a book, I’ll make sure the local library acquires one to put on the shelf next to Michael Leunig.

  • By beginning that title with “Just”, you don’t do yourself credit. These are very nice.
    Thanks for posting this. I’d been thick and hadn’t realized that the nice drawings with your posts were your work. 🙂

  • Awesome talent.. So gifted.. Good on you.. I’ve been meaning to ask and wondering for a long time who does the artwork. I always drew as a kid but was out shined by my sister, so she got all the encouragement. that was before fridge magnets.

  • New Hampshire has narrowed the democratic field in this political saga of 2020. Ms Johnstone your ” art ” and your writing bring serenity to my soul. Thank You!

  • Wow! Your talent!

  • The New Green Dealer satire > “The Freestones”


  • Truth is our weapon.

  • Great illustrations, particularly the one featuring John Bolton. I don’t share your views on some things, but your OPWC was impressive and confirmed what I thought about Syria in the first place. They are having a hard time now suppressing the truth on that story.

    • I could say that I have differences “on some things” with absolutely everyone. After all, I spend considerable time arguing with myself. 🙂 If me, myself and I can’t ever agree on anything, well good luck to another person reaching that status.
      What this has taught me over many years is tolerance. 🙂
      Peace and love to everyone.

      • Yes Jerry if we can find something external to laugh about at least once per day and laugh at our inner selves several times per day; me, myself and I will all get along extremely well!
