Political Cartoons                        & Editorial Illustration

I regularly create political cartoons and editorial illustrations for television, magazines, newspapers and online news sources, as well as cartoons for special interest use.


My political and editorial work has been syndicated and has been published in over 200 magazines and newspapers, (including Time, The Atlantic, Forbes, it has been featured on CNBC, and in the annual books "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year"). I'm a longstanding member of the AAEC, (American Association of Editorial Cartoonists).


(As you can see below, I cover both sides of the political aisle.)


 Due to corporate and book illustration work, I don't create as many political cartoons these days as I once did. So, I was humbled, and honored to receive the Society of Professional Journalists' First place TOR award for Editorial Cartoons in 2024 (also in 2023). 

Covering 80 media outlets in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Judged by the Los Angeles Press Club. (A surprise, since I didn't enter - an editor submitted on my behalf both years).
