Pulitzer Prize Winner: Editorial Cartooning
At 19, Jack Ohman was the youngest syndicated editorial cartoonist in the United States, ever. Now he is one of America’s syndicated middle-aged editorial cartoonists. His work appears in over 300 newspapers.
Called "the Thomas Nast of his time" by The National Review magazine, Payne is an informed journalist whose investigative writing has also made national headlines.
Scott Stantis is the editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune. His work is syndicated to over 200 newspapers and has been featured by Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, The New York Daily News, The Los Angeles Times, CNN, "CBS This Morning" and "Nightline." When Scott isn't creating editorial cartoons, he works on his daily comic strip, Prickly City.
Clever and unpredictable, two-time Pulitzer finalist Robert Ariail skewers politicians on both sides of the ideological fence with award-winning cartoons drawn for the Spartanburg, S.C., Herald-Journal.
According to veteran Ohio cartoonist Stahler, the most satisfying part of his job is "those days when I can load my ink cannon with fodder faster than I can fire it."
For more than two decades, political cartoonist Steve Kelley has devoted his attention to public officials the way the radiator grille of a tractor-trailer might devote its attention to June bugs. He has delighted readers by consistently consigning office-holders to the one fate they fear most: that of not being taken seriously.
Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle is an avowed independent who covers politics and contemporary cultural issues in a way that connects with readers. His loose, idiosyncratic style carries with it an unconventional message that has broad appeal. "I approach my work with a healthy skepticism for the ideological extremists littering our political landscape," explains Anderson.
