J.P. Trostle Quits ‘Herald-Sun’

Cartoonist J.P. Trostle has quit his job with the Herald-Sun citing “It was not a good place to work any more.”

J.P. Trostle resigned last week as a designer and illustrator at The Herald-Sun in Durham, N.C. As part of that job, he also did editorial cartoons for the newspaper’s Chapel Hill Herald edition.

Trostle told E&P Monday that he had arranged with his editor to continue doing a weekly local cartoon for the Chapel Hill Herald on a freelance basis for $25 a drawing. But upper management at the Paxton Media Group parent company “nixed” the plan, Trostle added.
