Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Ann Telnaes is leaving her syndicated print editorial cartoons as of this Saturday to concentrate on her animated editorial cartoons that she creates for the Washington Post. The Post had asked her to increase the number of animations from two to three a week and Ann didn’t feel like she could do three as well as her print work.
“I decided to end the print syndication mainly for time reasons,” Telnaes said in reply to an E&P question late this afternoon. “When The Washington Post asked me to increase the animations, I realized I couldn’t realistically do both since I do all the animation myself. So I thought this would be a great opportunity to take the next step in editorial cartooning.”
