Bill will draw three cartoons a week for us, along with a local cartoon each week about Tennessee, which we will syndicate to nearly 900 newspapers world wide. This also means we'll be able to feature Day's cartoons in our popular cartoon slideshows on msnbc.com.
Bill is a five-time winner of the Green Eyeshade Award from the Society of Professional Journalists, and has also been honored with the National Headliner Award, the John Fischetti Award, First Amendment Award, New York Newspaper Guild’s Page One Award, National Cartoonists Society’s Division Award for Best Editorial Cartoons, and James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism..
The defense of the oppressed and their condition is a deep and eloquent theme in his work. “I have great fun drawing and using humor in my cartoons,” says Day. “But when a terrible injustice occurs, I’ll use the most powerful images possible to address it.”
