Cartoonist Darrin Bell earned his degree in political science at the University of California, Berkeley. His award-winning cartoons have appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, Oakland Tribune and on "60 Minutes." Although he took a break from editorial cartoons soon after 9/11, he began drawing them again for syndication in 2013. In the '90s, Bell partnered with writer Theron Heir and the two launched Rudy Park. Today, Bell both draws and writes the strip as well as the Candorville comic strip.
