Stantis Starts in Chicago

Congratulations again to my buddy, Scott Stantis, who starts his stint as the cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune today.  The cartoonist chair at the Trib has been empty for a decade.  Scott starts out with his cartoon on the front page.

Scott’s old newspaper, The Birmingham News, is looking at portfolios and plans to fill Scott’s old spot with a new cartoonist.  I think they will get a big stack of portfolios; I have heard from a number of top cartoonists who are applying for the job.  There aren’t many job openings in this business.
