Patrick O’Connor lands work with the L.A. Times

Patrick O’Connor, who was laid off from the Los Angeles Daily News back in January, has picked up a bit of work with the cross town rival paper the Los Angeles Times doing illustrations for their op-ed page.

From his blog, he writes:

I’ve been doing some illustrations for the Los Angeles Times! Most editors and management at the Daily News had an unhealthy dislike for their crosstown rival. I always thought it was a far superior paper and have enjoyed it for a long time. So, it feels good to see my work on the Op Ed pages.

Great, News Patrick! Hope it leads to something more – and not,like, having to do product placements in your illustrations or cartoons for them.

I don’t know if they still run Joel Pett’s round-up of cartoons on Sunday- but it would be great if they threw your editorial cartoons in with that -in addition to the illustrations your doing.
Nice to see they recognize the value of a local voice
-Good Luck

They can’t keep a good man (or woman) out of the editorial pages. Good for you, Patrick.
