Some sad news out of Wisconsin: Cartoonist Stuart Carlson has died at 66. The editorial cartoonist spent most of his career on the staff of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, drawing for the paper for 25 years. After being laid off in 2008, he continued to be syndicated through Universal/Andrews McMeel.
The Journal Sentinel remembered Carlson “for his incisive, humorous commentary on current events,” and posted a long slide show of his quarter century of cartoons. His awards include the National Press Foundation Award for best editorial cartoons and the John Fischetti Award for best single political cartoon.
