Flash Drive: Mark Fiore's Pulitzer for Online Video Cartooning

Filed under: Looked Into   Tagged: , , , , , , , , , ,

Pollux writes:

Editorial cartoonists have been winning Pulitzers since 1922 (the first ever winner was Rollin Kirby), but 2010 marks the year in which an online video cartoonist has won the prize.

The winner? Mark Fiore of SFGate.com, the website for the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fiore uses Flash animation and biting satire to do what editorial cartoonists always hope to do: point a magnifying glass onto our times, make us laugh, and scorch the villains of each respective era.

Fiore’s animated cartoons can be seen here.
