I completely missed this one. Last week, I traded emails with Bill Mitchell and Bob Lang two editorial cartoonists that drew for CNN’s political website. Bill is perhaps the first editorial cartoonist to leave traditional editorial cartooning to provide animated editorials. Both artists confirm that CNN dropped their services last spring after new management was brought in. Bob tells me that no reason was given, but that he and Bill were always treated fairly by the CNN editors during their employment.
Bob says that he continues to offer his cartoons through his cartoon service, rightoons.com; Bill declined to offer details on projects he’s working on now.
