  • Cartoonists have been taking on the KKK for a long time

    Poynter looks at the long history of newspapers exposing and fighting the KKK, and how the Pulitzer often went to journalists who covered the racist groups in the face of threats and violence. Case in point: one of the very first editorial cartoonists to win the Pulitzer Prize was J.P. Alley ["no relation" —ed.] for a 1923 cartoon attacking the Klan. https://www.poynter.org/2017/how-courageous-journalists-of-the-last-century-stood-up-to-the-kkk-update/470666/  read more

  • Comic Strip of the Day, every day

    OK yeah, the AAEC got name checked in today's Comic Strip of the Day, but we'd be remiss if we didn't point out the yeoman's work Mike Peterson is doing with his blog every single day. His entertaining and insightful commentary on editorial cartoons is a must read, not just for the breadth of his knowledge but for his willingness to hold cartoonists to higher standards than "I made my deadline." Great stuff.  read more

  • How not to tweet: Trump misuses Varvel cartoon

    Earlier this week, Donald Trump tweeted —and just as quickly deleted— a meme that had used a Gary Varvel editorial cartoon without the artist's permission. The image showed a Trump train running over a CNN reporter. Given the recent events in Charlottesville, the tweet was universally condemned. Even though someone at the White House deleted it from Trump's twitter feed, screengrabs of the tweet were saved. Varvel told the Washington Post's Michael Cavna the incident blindsided him, and that the doctored cartoon completely changed the intent of the original. Here the whole sorbid thing here.  read more
