Cartoonist Charlie Daniel was born December 14, 1929;
today he becomes. in our parlance, a Senior Stripper.
Happy Birthday Charlie!
For 60 years, from 1958 to 2019, Charlie was cartooning for Knoxville, Tennessee.
Charlie was let go by Gannett early this year.
Charlie has been honored throughout his career, most recently being awarded the Distinguished Artist Award as part of the Tennessee Governor’s Arts Awards:
The Governor’s Arts Awards represent the state’s highest honor in the field of arts, celebrating those who’ve made major contributions to the state’s cultural life.
We hope he is enjoying his newfound freedom,
and wish Charlie a very happy birthday!
