What does a sequester look like?

As the U.S. heads towards budget sequestration, it dawned on me that we didn’t have an image of what that silly critter looked like. I created one starting from an 1887 Puck cartoon which originally had that monster labeled as the Tariff Question. He’s been Photoshopped and colored purple to represent that he was created in Congress both by blue Democrats and red Republicans.

There’s another 1908 Puck cartoon with an image that could represent a fiscal cliff.
