KAL returns to the Baltimore Sun

It’s official. The Baltimore Sun has announced that it’s bringing it’s long time editorial cartoonist, Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher, to their editorial pages starting next week. Unfortunately it’s not a full-time gig – just a weekly cartoon in the Sunday edition.

You can see a video that was produced to promote his return on their website.

KAL was the staff editorial cartoonist for 17 years but took a buy-out in 2005 when his job appeared to be on the cutting block. He then went on to be the artist-in-residence at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and started an animation company to produce his Digital Dubya character ? an animated caricature of former US President George W. Bush.

A guy w/ KAL’s pedigree is hired to do one cartoon a week for a major American daily and this is cause for “congratulations”…

$250.00 wk?

It could be a window to get back into the daily opinion pages, and one window is better than nothing when you don’t have a door…
