Mort Gerberg: NCS Gold Key/Hall of Fame Entry

The National Cartoonists Society takes great pleasure in announcing that the Gold Key Award will be presented this year to Mort Gerberg, for his widely-varied and successful career of over 60 years as a cartoonist.

The Gold Key, awarded by unanimous vote of the NCS Board of Directors, honors the recipient as a member of the NCS Hall of Fame.

     

Mort’s first cartoon was published in 1961 in Paul Krassner’s “The Realist”, which began his career spanning the disciplines of gag cartooning, illustration, comic strips, publishing, advertising, teaching, reportage illustration, animation, live-drawing for television, and writing.

The National Cartoonists Society announces Mort Gerberg‘s entry into their Hall of Fame.

The presentation of the award will be part of the 2021 Reubens Weekend,
which will once again be held virtually as NCSFest on the weekend of October 15.

The Gold Key/Hall of Fame is one of the NCS’ more rare honors.
Mort will be joining an exclusive club of cartoonists:

I ran across this ad in my local craigslist, and I thought of you. I remember watching Mayor Art as a kid. I had no idea he was a cartoonist.
