The announcement: Jack Ohman wins Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartoons
Jack Ohman can make you laugh, wince and fume with strokes of his pencil, and fewer than 25 words. Some of his finest work uses no words, like the one he drew last June when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. His Sunday panels are a throwback to days when cartoonists would use dozens of words to get across points. Ohman’s cartoons are witty, pointed and poignant. Politicians’ puffery is a frequent target. We offer you the 20 Ohman cartoons submitted for Pulitzer consideration. – Dan Morain, Editorial Page Editor, The Sacramento Bee
Ohman, The Sacramento Bee's editorial cartoonist, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize on Monday, April 18, 2016.
