Profiled: Kevin Kallaugher, Economist cartoonist

The Economist’s editorial cartoonist Kevin Kallaugher (“KAL”) was featured in Malibu Magazine. Unlike most profile articles that ask quetions like “when did you start cartooning….” this one asks more insightful ones (“Describe your personality in 10 words or less”, “If you were reincarnated, who or what would you like to come back as?”, etc. )

Here’s his response to what he said was his favorite question:

What tunes would be on the five-song playlist to your life?
1. “Born to Run” (Bruce Springsteen): a high-octane anthem to hope and possibility.
2. “Take it Easy” (The Eagles): embodies the spirit of youthful good times.
3. “Tightrope” (Stefan Grossman): an energetic instrumental I listen to while trying meet deadlines.
4. “Here’s a Health to the Company” (The Chieftains): a toast to and celebration of loved ones.
5. “Fanfare for the Common Man” (Aaron Copland): an expansive tribute to the good and great in all of us.
