Two-Time Pulitzer Prize-winner Jim Morin to Retireby GoComics Staff
Longtime editorial cartoonist Jim Morin of the Miami Herald has decided to retire to focus on painting.
From our friends at The Daily Cartoonist:
Jim’s career began in the mid-70s at the Syracuse University Daily Orange, the Beaumont (Tx) Enterprise and Journal, and the Richmond (Va) Times-Dispatch. In 1978 he found a home with the Miami Herald and settled in for the long haul.
Jim Morin’s many honors include the 1996 Berryman Award from the National Press Foundation, 1992 National Cartoonist Society Award, Overseas Press Club Awards in 1979 and 1990, and numerous others. He was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1977 and 1990. He has also won the 2007 Herblock Prize, the 2000 John Fischetti Award, the l999 Thomas Nast Society Award, the l996 National Press Foundation’s Berryman Award.
During the last half of the 1990s he also contributed a (more or less) weekly comic strip called “Magic City” to the Miami Herald magazine (I couldn’t find a sample).
