Gary Varvel to be inducted into Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame

Congratulations to The Indianapolis Star editorial cartoonist Gary Varvel who will be inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame.

From the The Indianapolis Star:

Nationally syndicated through Creators Syndicate, Varvel counts graphic-novel projects “Path to Hope” (2010) and “The Father Factor” (2012) among his career highlights at The Star. The former addressed child poverty, while the latter focused on children who grow up in homes without a father.

A Varvel cartoon published after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, became a poster that raised $130,000 for the relief effort in New York.

Varvel said he became effective as a cartoonist when he latched onto his political beliefs and stopped wavering in his perspective.
