Profiled: Joe Heller of Press-Gazette

Press-Gazette profiled their own editorial cartoonist Joe Heller.

“I occasionally use a brush to fill in full black in large areas, but mainly I love cross-hatching,” he says. “Cross-hatching is very relaxing to me. There’s a rhythm to it, and I can create different patterns and textures.

“I really enjoy that. I don’t think I’d ever give it up. But, because of my deadlines, I have to come up with a cartoon every day. That means I have to come up with the idea, stage the cartoon on paper, figure out what I want to say and do all the words, lettering and colorize it, all within a certain number of hours.”
