Keith Davidson’s 30 Years with The Valley Reporter

[Keith] Davidson began working at The Valley Reporter in 1992, after seeing an ad published in the paper seeking a graphic artist. He began drawing comics and working on advertisements as well as a plethora of other tasks, including the weekly Chinese food run on Wednesdays.

The (Waitsfield, Vt.) Valley Reporter profiles their editorial cartoonist Keith Davidson.

Although he is no longer a salaried employee, the Moretown resident continues to supply The Valley Reporter with its weekly cartoon and has no plans to stop.

“I hope I get to do it forever,” he said.

Rural Vermont is always on topic for Keith, as is the weather.

The cartoonist is also a fine art painter and works on personal projects in his free time. As for the future, Davidson hopes to soon publish a book with his accumulation of 30 years of comics, a project that has been a longtime coming.

“It’s about 10 or five years in the making,” he said.
