Phil Hands, Editorial Cartoonist and More

The Wisconsin State Journal proudly proclaims of Phil Hands:

We’ve got a full-time editorial cartoonist.

Of course a full time newspaper cartoonist does more than political cartoons.

Phil, who also handles our letters to the editor, creates three to four editorial cartoons for us each week, and at least one of those is syndicated nationally each week…

We also have tapped into Phil’s skills as an illustrator for uses beyond editorial cartoons. For example, every three months he draws the covers for our quarterly arts guides produced by our features staff. And he’s done many sports illustrations involving the Packers, Badgers and Brewers.

The State Journal profile of Phil also notes:

Last week was a big one for Phil, because Friday was the deadline for this year’s submissions to the Pulitzer Prize committee. Cartoonists from around the world submit entries each year, 20 cartoons each, trying to win the coveted prize. Phil hasn’t won one yet, but this could be the year. The Pulitzer Prizes are announced in April each year.
