KAL wins Overseas Press Club of America Award


Veteran cartoonist Kevin "KAL" Kallaugher joined some select company with his fifth career OPC Award for Best Cartoon as his crow quill found favorite subjects in China, Vladimir Putin, climate change and deadly conspiracies. Only nine journalists have more than five career OPC awards.

Kevin Kallaugher (pen name KAL)

Judges: Kevin "KAL" Kallaugher seems like a cartoonist transported from a bygone era, while still creating compelling work that resonates with today's audience. His impeccable pen and ink cross-hatching and weaponized bobble-headed caricatures might look at home on newspaper editorial pages of a century ago, which seems fitting since that was the last time we saw a global pandemic on the scale of COVID-19.
