Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

BorgBlog Online Journalism Award finalist

Congratulations to Jim Borgman! BorgBlog has been named a finalist in the national Online Journalism Award competition for 2006 in the commentary category in the large market division. He is up against entries from the New York Times, Slate and BET. The contest is looking for commentary original to the Web, not just repurposed print work. Those of you who read BorgBlog regularly, know that it offers a rich variety of Jim’s sketches, thought processes and comments that don’t appear in print. Even most of his print cartoons now appear in the blog long before they ever go on the press.

Check out the complete list at The winners will be announced in October.

Posting Your Drawings

When I began this blog a year or so ago I wrote that I hoped viewers would also post their sketches here. A lot of visitors to this blog are visual people and it seemed only natural that our conversation might be both visual and verbal.

In their desire to get a lot of online projects launched, our online tech people asked me to be patient and promised we'd return to the technological issues that would allow viewers to participate visually in this blog.

This morning I attended an online training session Gannett has made available to its bloggers, and it's clear that other newspapers have figured out how online readers can post photographs, drawings, etc. on blogs.

My question: How important is this to you? If we made this tool available, would you post cartoon ideas, graphic commentaries, relevant photos or other sketches on this blog? What might be the issues on your end?

I Yam What I Yam

OK, I know every cartoonist in America is drawing some variation on this idea today -- a situation that often causes me to bypass obvious cartoons -- but I had to do it anyway. I've been a Popeye-holic since I was a little kid. Drawing Popeye from the Saturday morning TV screen was my earliest drawing lesson. What can I say? I yam what I yam.
