In January 2017, political cartoonists got a new target: President Donald Trump. For the eight years prior, they skewered President Barack Obama; the eight years prior to that, President George W. Bush. See how that works? Those upset by political cartoons we run that are “mean to Mr. Trump” areÃâÃÂ ...

The mood, he recalls, at the gathering of the world's largest organisation of political cartoonists, was somewhat dark and funereal, as if in apprehension of an imminent cartoon apocalypse. “Year after year, you hear the members there saying cartooning is a dying profession, heading down the path of theÃâÃÂ ...

Morgan: Yes, political cartoonists must be paid equally as editors, who write 1,000 words to explain their articles. Cartoonists can draw their concepts which are worth more than 10,000 words. 3.

Some political cartoonists, especially those few with a steady job at a newspaper or magazine, don't see provocation as part of their job. Quite the opposite. As Kevin Kallaugher (known as KAL), an editorial cartoonist for The Economist and The Baltimore Sun, told The Washington Post, the secret to goodÃâÃÂ ...

It's hard to say about my own peers, but it has to be said: New Zealand's group of political cartoonists has hardly changed in my lifetime. In an era of radical generational change in politics and media, our cartoonist pool is largely static and is hardly representational. To be blunt – it's very old, very male andÃâÃÂ ...

Trump would take on deranged shooters armed with assault rifles with his hands. If he were a teacher, he thinks having a gun in his diminutive hands would be even better. Because teachers are trusted people. His daughter, Ivanka, a close presidential adviser, also believes it's a good idea. And, as it turnsÃâÃÂ ...

Political cartoonists, there's only about 100 of us left, I think. We're an endangered species.

You can buy my syndicated feed and IÃâÃÂ ...

Uganda's political cartoonists have sharp pens, producing work that is often highly critical of the government and state of the country. And yet, unlike the rest of Uganda's media, they have largely managed to avoid the government's tightening grip on freedom of expression. This, despite “often controversialÃâÃÂ ...

Political cartoonists are not in the game to win popularity contests and Low would not have won a "Friend of Fascists" award. In September of 1939, the Evening Standard published perhaps his most famous cartoon. In it he satirized the cynicism that lay at the heart of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. He drewÃâÃÂ ...

This morning at the breakfast table the CEO was enjoying her coffee and chuckling with some political cartoons in our new favorite magazine. There's a lot of "fodder in the trough" for today's political cartoonists and most strike at the heart of our present political situation. Although many of these are clever,ÃâÃÂ ...
