In Arizona Arnie Bermudez has joined the Blog For Arizona crew.

Blog For Arizona welcomes Arnie:

We’re very pleased to announce that Arizona’s own Arnie Bermudez will begin posting his editorial cartoons on BlogForArizona every Monday! (We hope!)

I’ll let Arnie introduce himself to the community:

I also began freelancing with The Tucson Citizen Newspaper providing them with illustrations and political caricatures. Eventually, my freelancing lead to full-time employment with the Citizen where I enjoyed working as a staff artist and being the youngest member of the editorial board for 2 years, until the demise of the paper  During these years I produced a weekly cartoon strip as well as countless graphics, illustrations and caricatures for the oldest continuously published newspaper in Arizona, until 2009. Currently, I am a freelance illustrator/animator /cartoonist and a full-time goofball.”
