Deadline artist Tony Auth on political cartoons & more

    Listen

    Hour 2

    Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist TONY AUTH is joining WHYY and NewsWorks. Auth left The Philadelphia Inquirer last month after more than 40 years, and now embarks on new adventures and experiments in digital story-telling, doing new forms of commentary, using pen and ink and watercolor, as well as digital apps, even as his political cartoons continue to be syndicated. As Doylestown’s James A. Michener Art Museum prepares a retrospective exhibition of his art-on-deadline this summer, Auth sits down with Marty to talk about his career, the past/present/future of newspapers and editorial cartooning, and what he hopes to achieve in his new WHYY efforts.
