Rob Rogers

Editorial Cartoonist, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Despite being born in Philadelphia and spending ten years in Oklahoma (through no fault of his own), Rob Rogers considers himself a true Pittsburgher. His work has become a staple of Pittsburgh culture while also receiving national play.

After graduating from Carnegie-Mellon University with a master's degree in fine arts, Rogers was hired in 1984 as staff cartoonist for The Pittsburgh Press. He joined the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 1993, after it bought the Press.

Rogers' editorial cartoons cover national and international issues. He also lampoons local topics, particularly in his weekly feature "Brewed on Grant." Syndicated by United Feature Syndicate, his work regularly appears in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today and Newsweek, to name a few. Rogers' cartoon "The Gingrich Who Stole Christmas" was the cover for Newsweek's 1994 year-end issue.

His work received the 2000 Thomas Nast Award from the Overseas Press Club and the 1995 National Headliner Award. In 1999 he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He has won 12 Golden Quill Awards.

Rob Rogers is a national advocate for the profession of editorial cartooning. An active member of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, he served as president in 2006-07. He has hosted two national AAEC conventions, the 2003 event in Pittsburgh and the 50th anniversary convention in Washington, D.C., in 2007.

He regularly speaks to public audiences and school groups about his work and his creative process. Rogers has also curated two national cartoon exhibitions, "Too Hot to Handle: Creating Controversy through Political Cartoons" at The Andy Warhol Museum and "Bush Leaguers: Cartoonists Take on the White House" at the American University Museum.

In 2009, Rogers celebrated 25 years as a political cartoonist with the release of No Cartoon Left Behind: The Best of Rob Rogers. For more information go to www.robrogers.com.
