Cartoonist Mike Marland received the New Hampshire Press Association Lifetime Achievement Award Saturday night at their Excellence in Journalism presentation.
Over the years Marland has drawn cartoons for 11 newspapers from all over the state, starting out at the Littleton Courier. Mike spent the bulk of his career, almost 30 years, skewing politicians for the Concord Monitor. Although officially retired from editorial cartooning, Mike continues to draw a rural humor comic strip, R.F.D. syndicated by King Features Weekly Service and is the main gag writer for the long-running King Features daily comic strip Barney Google & Snuffy Smith. He also occasionally submits cartoons to Indepth.nh.org.
