Dream Job: Political Cartoonist

Nashville’s NewsChannel5 has a Dream Jobs segment, this week they spent some time with cartoonist Matt Wuerker.

Matt Wuerker first started drawing cartoons when Jimmy Carter was President. He freelanced for a long time before landing a more permanent spot at Politico when he was 50.

Matt calls himself old-fashioned, and says adding visual humor and caricature are what make cartoons so great.

Matt shows Newsy’s Chance Seales around his dream job in a video spot.
I love that wall showcasing Matt’s art.
