"Cry-Baby" Jim Breaks

Bradford's Jim Breaks is among the elite of stars, whose ring antics helped fill arenas over two decades. He acquired his nickname by always showing a tendency for childish tantrums when he pushed opponents too far and they retaliated in kind. Similarly, Jim was never short of a sharp word for opponents, referees, or indeed even anyone at ringside who caught his attention. This trait never masked the fact that Jim Breaks was a brilliant lightweight wrestler who could compete with the very pinnacle of the wrestling community. ( from the "Grapple Manual" )

I can't help but think, as here in the US we approach the Presidential Inauguration on Tuesday, that in this drawing "Cry-Baby" looks like a weird combination of Barak Obama and George W. Bush.

Continue to love your work.
