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.

Been Busy

Here's the print I created for the Fine Arts Fund campaign here in Cincinnati this year. For you non-locals, the flying pig is a symbol of our town (don't ask) and the FAF is a non-profit annual campaign to raise money for the various arts organizations here. A signed print will be given to every Leadership Giver, which means those who dug $1500 out of their pockets and paychecks.

I've signed 600 prints so far, halfway to the projected number of 1200 Leadership gifts.

Hmmm, let’s see: I'm guessing that's an image from Swine Lake? And Pigoletto? Is that Lester Young in his pork pie hat?) I immediately recognized Link Wray and the artist Francis Bacon. Might that be Cincinnati’s own James LeSwine? And of course, Hamlet.

Is this color by hand?...

Oops, that's a trumpet player isn't it? ( Must be Erskine Hoggins.)

Sometimes editorial cartoonists get knocked for being negative nay-sayers of the community. These three projects you've just posted are more proof that you are a great asset to your community and neighbors. It's very obvious your yay-saying is equal to your citicisms. Bravo!

my guess is Borgman colored it using Photoshop.
