1983. unbound. 9 x 11.25 inches, no place, no date, circa 1983. This drawing, executed in india ink, depicts a flustered President Ronald Reagan dressed in an oversized suit jacket and pants labeled "Budget Deficits." Reagan is visiting his tailor, an elephant holding a tape measure labeled "Senate G.O.P.," who sizes up the President suspiciously. Pletcher has signed at the lower right-hand corner. On the top blank border, the artist has written: "To Howard Moliff, with all good wishes, Eldon Pletcher." Though undated, this cartoon was most likely originally published in the New Orleans Times Picayune, shortly before Pletcher's retirement in 1984. Very good condition.
