Newsday is hosting the annual convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. The meeting brings together cartoonists and illustrators from around the world.
During the opening session, we put seven cartoonists on the spot and asked them to sketch Donald Trump. We didn't offer any other guidance, we just handed over a blank pad. Here are the results.
