#Quote
1[on why he has taken life-drawing classes throughout his life] You get into bad habits otherwise, with just cartoons. You have to keep yourself fresh that way. For anyone working in the figure, it's a necessary discipline.
2Politics is very boring [nowadays]. The people are all the same now. They're all bastards now, but it's what's kept me going for so many years.
#Fact
1He started out as a copy boy at a Adelaide newspaper. They noticed his talent for drawing, and made him a cartoonist. He put in 10 years there, and then got a job at the Denver Post. In 1975, he was hired away by the Washington Star, where he worked until that paper folded in 1981. He had a sufficiently prominent reputation to go independent soon afterward.
2He is a famous political cartoonist. He has been internationally syndicated since 1965.
3He produces fine arts as well, including sketches of nudes and oils on canvas, along with sculptures in bronze.
4He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1967.
