Cartoonist Celebrates 30 Years at Hartford Courant

Bob Englehart / Hartford Courant

Fox CT did a piece on Hartford Courant cartoonist and my pal Bob Englehart (view Bob’s cartoons here), who is celebrating 30 years of drawing cartoons at the paper with a new exhibit of his work.

“He’s an icon in Connecticut. You’re not really on the Connecticut map until you’ve been Engleharted,” says Carolyn Lumsden, the opinion editor at the Hartford Courant.

Yes, Bob’s name has become a verb.

“It’s always interesting to me when I criticize someone and I draw them, I make them look like a goofball,” says Englehart. “Then they call up and they say, ‘can I have a copy of that cartoon?’”

Don’t you get it? I’m not on your side!”
