“I don’t try to be balanced,” says former Inquirer cartoonist Tony Auth. “I try to tell the truth as I see it.” Auth will speak and show his Pulitzer Prize-winning drawings at the Princeton Chamber’s breakfast this Wednesday, November 13 at 7:30 a.m. at the Nassau Club. Cost: $25 for members.
For an example of his work, here is his cut-to-the-bone Veteran’s Day cartoon. Now Auth is digital artist-in-residence for WHYY’s NewsWorks.org blog, Behind the Lines, where he uses a $5 app on his iPad to pioneer in online cartooning. After appearing on NewsWorks, his cartoons are syndicated across the country. His topic on Wednesday: Sacred Cows Make the Best Hamburger: A political cartoonists observations of the absurdities and ridiculousness of the past several years.
For more than 40 years Inquirer readers “had breakfast” with his cartoons. Now we can have breakfast with the real Tony Auth.
