From The Pilot (North Carolina) comes the sad news of the passing of Stan Hunt who was their editorial cartoonist for about 9 years.  He was also an illustrator and a golf columnist. He was 77 years old.

After his military service, Hunt attended New York School of Art, where he studied airbrush and photo retouching. He then worked with famous New York cartoonist Willard Mullin to learn the art of cartooning.

?Their styles were very similar,? his son said.
