2013 in review: Jack Ohman, the New Guy Who Draws Sutter

Thursday marks the anniversary of my start date at The Sacramento Bee. Previously, I had worked at The Oregonian in Portland, Ore., (yes, I watch “Portlandia”; yes, I like it) for 29 years. That’s a long time, and I had lots of time to develop riffs and themes about Oregon. I got very good at drawing slugs, wolves, salmon, old-growth timber and hydroelectric dams. Joining The Bee, a much different and faster-paced media market, was a challenge I felt ready for. I even survived my first stretch of 160-degree weather.
