Peter Kuper INterSECTs on May 25th

Our CagleCartoonist Peter Kuper, sends me this announcement of a cool event, in New York City and online, about his fantastic “insects in the library” exhibition “INterSECTS”. I wrote about this exhibition when it first started back in January. I encourage everyone to join Peter online. And enjoy Peter’s new masterpieces below.

Having spent a lifetime fascinated by flying, crawling creatures and nearly a year working inside the New York Public Library as a 2020-21 Cullman Fellow, I not only had the opportunity to explore my grant subject– the history of insects– but also the remarkable building itself.

I’m (insanely) working towards a 200+ page graphic novel INterSECTS  that will take me years, but in the meantime had the great fortune to be given an exhibition in the library’s Stokes Gallery that includes excerpts of this project and my earlier graphic novel Ruins. I’ll also be bugging out with some experts on the subject, May 25th.”

The event will be streaming (and later on YouTube, so people don’t have to be in NYC to attend) Inspired by The New York Public Library’s current exhibition INterSECTS, curator and cartoonist Peter Kuper gathers his friends from the insect world to bring the exhibition to life for a special one-night-only  with visual presentations and talks at the 42nd Street Library, May 25th 6:30-7:30 EST

Roe vs. Wade and the SCOTUS Leak

A leaked, draft decision by the Supreme Court has shaken the nation as the justices prepare to overturn abortion rights, overturning fifty years of settled law. The court has acknowledged that the document is authentic and it seems unlikely that any of the majority, conservative justices will change their minds.  The cartoons are starting to flood in – here are the first ones we received from the CagleCartoonists.  I’ll update these as more come in.

My Favorite Ukraine Flag Cartoons

Here are my favorite Ukraine Flag cartoons, starting with three of my own.  The first is my memorial cartoon for Ukraine’s civilian deaths.

This one is on America’s support for Ukraine …

This is my first Ukraine flag cartoon, drawn 28 years ago in 1984 for the Muppets and Hasbro/Playskool. I claim this as the first Ukraine flag cartoon! (Considering that Ukraine was founded as an independent nation in 1991, 21 years ago.)

Here are more favorites by the CagleCartoonists …

This Picasso inspired cartoon is by Emad Hajjaj, from Jordan.

 

This Van Gogh inspired cartoon is by Emad’s brother, Osama Hajjaj, from Jordan.

 

This one is by Ed Wexler, from Los Angeles.

 

This one is by Kap, from Barcelona, Spain.

 

This one is by Hajo, from the Netherlands.

 

… and this one is by Jeff Koterba, from Nebraska.

Steve Sack has Retired

I’m sorry to write that my friend and longtime CagleCartoonist, Steve Sack has retired from editorial cartooning.  Here’s a note Steve wrote for our subscribing editors:

It’s with extremely mixed feelings that after 42 years, and over ten thousand cartoons, I will be retiring from the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

I’ve been away from my drawing table in recent weeks, recovering from hand surgery for carpal tunnel and other nerve issues. I’ll eventually have my hand back. But after truly difficult reflection I’ve decided that I’d like to change my focus. At 68 I have other interests and projects, artistic and otherwise, that I’d like to devote more time to.

I want to sincerely thank you for printing or at least considering my work for your paper. An artist needs an audience and I am most appreciative that you could share my efforts with your readers. As much as cartoonists sometimes complain and butt heads with editors, in truth we depend on you.

I hope you continue to support our unique profession. It’s been my honor to appear on your pages.

Best,
Steve Sack

Steve drew his last cartoon for us two months ago, on February 25th. We were hoping for a quick come back from his surgery, but that was not to be.  This is a sad day, but Steve doesn’t sound sad; he seems excited about different projects. Our door is always open to Steve to return.  Steve’s cartoon archive will remain on our sites, with his oldies available to editors.

Steve’s actual last cartoon, or I should say, most recent cartoon, is this Tucker Carlson gem, in collaboration with Ed Wexler.  Steve called Ed to describe his idea which Ed drew up. I’ve invited Steve to do the same with me; we’ll see if that happens.

Steve wrote this piece for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and asked me to hold it until today:

Message to Star Tribune readers
———————-
It’s with extremely mixed feelings that after 42 years, and over ten thousand cartoons, I will be retiring from the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

I wish I was able to offer a proper farewell cartoon. I’ve been away from my drawing table in recent weeks, recovering from hand surgery for carpal tunnel and other nerve issues. I’ll eventually have my hand back. But after truly difficult reflection I’ve decided that I’d like to change my focus. At 68 I have other interests and projects, artistic and otherwise, that I’d like to devote more time to.

It’s been a pleasure to work with everyone at the Star Tribune. The support I’ve felt over the years from the editors, writers, and support staff from every department has made this a cartoonist’s dream job.

I’d like to express my sincere appreciation for you, my readers. Since my career’s beginning at the U of M student paper, The Daily, I’ve been cranking out cartoons for 45 years. They haven’t all been gems but I can honestly say I gave each one my all. Some readers have taken exception to a few of the views I’ve expressed. OK, maybe more than a few….that’s the nature of the opinion biz.  The Minneapolis Tribune editor who hired me, the late great Charles Bailey, gave me just one directive: “Never be afraid to make people angry, but know exactly why you’re doing it”. A political cartoonist couldn’t ask for more.

A few years back the Star Tribune published a collection of my cartoons in a book, The First and Only Book of Sack (still available in the Star Tribune online store!). To help promote it I stepped up my public appearances and had the opportunity to visit with many of our newspaper’s readers in person. I never failed to be gratified by the appreciation for the Star Tribune’s journalism that was conveyed.

Editorial cartooning is a negative art form, for the most part. We look for things to complain about, find fault, point fingers. The world is a mess and always has been, somewhere. We look for it. Our tools can be harsh: Sarcasm. Caricature. Gross exaggeration. We twist politicians’ words, nitpik their faults and figuratively pull down their pants. The lofty goal of it all this is to expose a Greater Truth. Which simply boils down to sharing one’s view of the world. That’s the goal of every artist.

From Day 1 in 1981 its been my honor to be the cartoonist for the Star Tribune. Whether you loved my cartoons or hated them, posted them on your refrigerator or lined your bird cage, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your day.

Steve Sack

See Steve’s farewell in the Star-Tribune.

See Steve’s cartoon archive.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune will continue running CagleCartoons now that Steve has left.

Inflation Woes: Top Ten Cartoons of the Week

Inflation remains a big story across the country, so it’s not surprising that most of the top ten reprinted cartoons this week touched on the rising prices hitting just about everyone.

This week also saw Americans scrambling to finish their tax returns, a universally-despised activity shared by cartoonists and editors alike. And a couple of COVID-19 cartoons made it into the mix this week, as cases once again begin to rise across the country.

And here are the Top Ten …

#1

John Darkow took the #1 most reprinted spot, the first of two cartoons John has in the Top Ten.

#2

Pat Bagley took second place with his first of two in the Top Ten.

#3

John Darkow took third place.

#4

Jeff Koterba nabbed 4th place.

#5

Dick Wright claims the five-spot with his first of two cartoons in theTop Ten.

#6

Guy Parsons came in sixth.

#7

Dave Whamond nabs seventh place.

#8

Jeff Koterba took 8th place with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

#9

Dave Granlund takes 9th place.

#10

Chris Weyant wraps it up at number ten.
