Mike Keefe, S&R contributor, scores a Pulitzer

Mike KeefeCongratulations to Denver’s own Mike Keefe for winning the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning. It’s a well-deserved accolade; Mike is one of the best in the business and has been for a long time.

S&R readers may recall that Mike submitted a wonderful, amusing piece to the Harvey Pekar artists’ tribute we hosted late last year. Mike was one of the first names we thought of when we were planning the series; we were honored, needless to say, when he accepted our invite… and bowled over by what he so generously contributed.

Congratulations and continued success to Mike, and if you’re new to his work, do yourself a favor and bookmark him here.
