Gary Varvel Keynotes GOP Dinner

Cartoonist Gary Varvel was the keynote speaker at a local Republican function.

From The Greenfield Daily Reporter:

The award-winning syndicated editorial cartoonist who spent 24 years at the Indianapolis Star was the keynote speaker at the Hancock County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner at Adaggios Banquet Hall late last Friday. He was joined by GOP officials from throughout the county and state to celebrate their ideals while criticizing those of their rivals.

Many of the cartoons Varvel discussed portray his views on events happening across the state, country and world, whether criticizing Democrats, transgender issues and cancel culture, or advocating for former President Donald Trump, gun rights and anti-abortion stances.

“A lot of times my cartoons are commenting on the news, but sometimes I can help teach, because I think that people don’t know what’s happening,” he said.

Varvel’s Christian faith is a recurring theme throughout much of his work.

Gary’s editorial cartoons are syndicated by Creators and seen at GoComics.

Creators also distributes Gary’s Humor Me, which, unlike other caption contests, coaxes political responses.

Next speaking engagement for Gary is The Villages on March 11.
