Matt Wuerker talks about his dream job

Newsy, a digital news platform from E.W. Scripps, pays a visit to Matt Wuerker's studio at Politico. The result is a short profile touching on Wuerker's career — check out the photos of young Matt's earlier jobs! — and the business of cartooning. There's nothing new here for anyone in the field, but its a fun video showing Wuerker in his natural environment, how he creates his cartoons, and advice for budding cartoonists.
