Kevin “Kal” Kallaugher, artist-in-residence, in the San Francisco Examiner

For over 30 years, Kevin “Kal” Kallaugher, artist-in-residence, drew political cartoons for the Economist. Now, more than 40 of those cartoons have been collected for an exhibit at San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum called “Drawn From The Economist: The Editorial Art of KAL,” which will run through March 13.

“My job is not to make people laugh. It’s to make people think,” Kallaugher says. “You’re trying to further the political discourse using a tool which is accessible to the masses.”

The article, “Prime Political Cartoons From KAL,” appeared in the San Francisco Examiner on January 12.
