This week we celebrate Peter Bagge, one of our cartoonists who has been drawing comics for 35 years. He was recognized on Monday by the United States Artists Fellows as a 2014 USA Rockefeller Fellow of Literature! The U.S.A. program is a “grant-making organization funded by philanthropic foundations and individuals to support creativity. The 16 women and 18 men were [chosen] by experts in their fields and were among 116 nominated artists living in the United States.” Bagge also received $50,000!
"U.S.A. Fellowships are awarded to innovative artists of all ages and at all stages of their careers, who are nominated for their commitment to excellence and the enduring potential of their work,” said chief executive Carolina Garcia Jayaram.
2014 has been a banner year with the release of Bagge’s HATEcollection Buddy Buys a Dump and Fantagraphics will soon be rolling out another title from the cartoonist as well. Raise a glass and make a toast to Peter Bagge! You’re number one, indeed.

SLINGING SATIREOCTOBER 9, 2014 - MARCH 9, 2015
The Cartoon Art Museum and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists present Slinging Satire, a showcase of recent comics by today’s top political cartoonists, on display from October 9, 2014 through March 9, 2015. Featured artists include Pulitzer Prize winners Mark Fiore, David Horsey, and Kevin Siers; Herblock Award winners Mat Bors, Jen Sorensen, Tom Tomorrow and Matt Wuerker; and a host of cartoonists from the publishing industry’s most prominent newspapers, websites, and magazines.  
 The cartoonists included in this exhibition span the political spectrum from bleeding-heart liberals to staunch conservatives. Some draw cartoons using traditional tools, like pen and ink, to be featured in their daily newspaper. Some create works with cutting edge digital tools, solely for online venues, while others forego static images altogether, creating original animated cartoons to express their political opinions. From veteran creators to today’s cutting edge innovators, we invite you to explore the power and fun of visual satire.  About the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) is a professional association concerned with promoting the interests of staff, freelance and student editorial cartoonists in the United States, Canada and Mexico. With nearly 300 members, it is the world’s largest organization of political cartoonists.   Formed in 1957 by a small group of newspaper cartoonists led by John Stampone of the Army Times, the AAEC was created to promote and stimulate public interest in the editorial page cartoon and to create closer contact among political cartoonists. Each year, the annual AAEC convention is held in a different North American city, allowing cartoonists and other association members—including publishers, writers, historians and collectors—the chance to meet face-to-face, talk shop and generally kvetch.   The AAEC follows the publishing industry and member artists through weekly news updates at its website editorialcartoonists.com, and in its quarterly magazine The Notebook. The AAEC site also offers dozens of new editorial cartoons each day, and a recent archive of nearly 40,000 cartoons.
