Ben Sargent wins Best of Cox award

Ben Sargent, editorial cartoonist for the Austin American-Statesman, has won The Best of Cox award for editorial cartooning. The Best of Cox is a journalism award for employees of the Cox newspaper chain that operates in six states.

Regarding Ben’s work, the judges said,

This cartoonist fires away.

We were impressed by his clear, strong voice and by illustrations that were well-crafted and layered.

You move through each panel, as the point gets driven home. The artist isn’t content to just get a quick laugh. This was the strongest entry in a strong field.

His submission portfolio is online for viewing.

Sargent has one of the most distinctive styles around. He has great visual ideas and a real acidic sense of humor.
