Announcing Great News!

You may have noticed a new logo on the top of my blog recently. It is with great pleasure that I announce to you that I have been accepted into the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists. This is a national trade organization and it requires scrutiny to get into. Supposedly I'm good enough to hang with the "big boys," and I attribute a lot of this to the support of people like you. Thank you for your continued support as we anticipate further politixcartoons growth!

"Benjamin is a talented illustrator and insightful cartoonist, too. A great member of the Colorado Alliance of Illustrators for many years now, in addition to producing beautiful children's books and paintings with also extremely multi-talented wife Cherish. I look forward to seeing more politixcartoons at the .com and in papers and magazines!"

"Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention."

--Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist

"Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben's pen."

-- John Andrews
Former President, Colorado SenateHost, Backbone Radio
