Pat Bagley – 40 Years Looking for That 1 Cartoon

Pat Bagley and The Salt Lake Tribune are celebrating 40 years together.

Artists of Utah joins in the celebration by posting a profile from earlier this year.

On the flip side, the theory of the great cartoon keeps him motivated: “There is the Platonic ideal of a cartoon out there and if I could just grab it, the right cartoon and the right moment, it would destroy the Trump presidency. And it’s out there,” says Bagley intently. “The closest I’ve come to that is the Malala cartoon, Malala and the Book,” he says of his image of Pakistani female education advocate and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai in sandals and a headscarf, and the text: “What Terrifies Religious Extremists like the Taliban are not American Tanks or Bombs … It’s a Girl With a Book.” “I thought when I got the idea it was a pretty good idea, a dang good idea,” he says. “I had no idea it was going to get the response that it got.”

The Artists of Utah/15 Bytes profile is now available online.

Friday night go to a Pat Bagley book signing.
