Signe Wilkinson (Semi-) Retires

Signe Wilkinson and The Philadelphia Inquirer/The Philadelphia Daily News announced today that Signe will become an occasional contributor rather than a daily editorial cartoonist:

Editor’s Note: Signe Wilkinson, the first woman win a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, and the cartoonist for The Inquirer and Daily News since 1985, is putting down her pencil at the end of 2020 for daily cartoons (though she’ll make occasional guest appearances on our pages through her syndicate).

In a brief introduction to a retrospective of her 35 years of cartooning Signe bemoans the fact that her work hadn’t stopped crime or corruption, hasn’t cured poverty and other societal ills.

My only hope is that my drawings have occasionally given a boost to those intrepid citizens who work for a safer, fairer, and more equitable city, state, and region.

I don’t live anywhere near Philly, but I’ve always admired and appreciated her work.

“In the meantime, let me thank the many politicians in and out of prison who have given me so much material.” Love it!
