Do Awards Still Matter?

I was part of a panel with fellow cartoonists Lalo Alcaraz and Signe Wilkinson discussing if cartoon awards, specifically the Pulitzer Prize, still matter. This took place at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library at Ohio State University and was presented by the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists during the 2022 convention in Columbus.

I participated in this event but the news outlet only mentioned one of the participants but it wasn’t me, the member of the General Assembly, or the President Grant impersonator.

The Cover of the AAEC newsletter.

The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists made my cartoon on “perilous times for political cartoonists” the cover of their trade publication, The Notebook. Funny thing, I’m currently not a member. But, I promised them I’ll join soon. Also, the use of this cartoon on the cover has prompted several colleagues to speak out against it.

The Moderate Voice


Interviewed by Mr. Media.


I’m kinda proud of this one. This is a fringe, right-wing, conspiracy site that’s not a fan of my work. But, the fact they’ve even noticed me is pleasing. That the writer conducting mental gymnastics grouped me in as part of a conspiracy theory with a correspondent for The Washington Post and the fringe, left-wing website Democratic Underground is like receiving an award. Though, this will probably send more trolls my way.

A slight mention at the beginning of this Washington Post article.

The Jewish Museum of Berlin

The Jewish Museum of Berlin is featuring an exhibit on the persecution and prejudice toward Muslim women for what they’re wearing and they’re using one of my cartoons. This feature aired on ZDF, which I was told is the biggest network in Germany. It includes my cartoon. I wish I spoke German.

In May, 2011, shortly after bin Laden was killed, Rachel Maddow highlighted one of my cartoons.  My phone rang so much that night I never did go to bed.

The Independent Take 1

Here’s some heavy criticism of my work written by an editor at The Independent, which is a client of mine and usually runs every cartoon I draw. I actually enjoy reading criticism of my work so this didn’t really anger or annoy me.

The Independent Take 2

And then the same writer did it again. Hmm.

Clay Loses A Bet

Back in 2008 the Redskins were going to Seattle in the playoffs.  I thought it would be really clever to make a bet with Eric Devericks who worked at The Seattle Times at that time.  If the Redskins would have won Eric would have jumped into Puget Sound wearing a Redskins jersey.  If the Seahawks won then I would have to write a song, within a week, about the the situation and post it on youtube.  You can see what happened.
