A recent post by Jim Romenesko regarding impending layoffs at the Cleveland Plain Dealer raised concerns that editorial cartoonist Jeff Darcy might be one of the unfortunate staffers. I have good news to report. Jeff tells me his job is secure and that they will actually be printing his work larger.
My work will not only continue to appear in print, but starting next Wednesday will be part of an expanded Forum section in which the cartoons
will run double the size they are now, and in full color.
In addition to print, my work continues on Cleveland.com where in addition to the cartoon I’ve been posting written commentary under the cartoon
of varying length depending on the topic.

Great news! At least ONE full-time staff job has been saved.
But they killed Derf’s The City. His columnist wife was sparred the cuts.
I’m happy for Jeff D., but it’s such a shame that Derf’s “The City” was cut. A brilliant strip by a local cartoonist — such a loss for our city’s paper.
