October Surprise Political Cartoonista Wednesday

Lisa Benson

Politically conservative, artistically brilliant cartoons that speak to mainstream America. Available in more than 100 newspapers across the country.

Lisa Benson, a freelance artist and graphic designer who has drawn local cartoons for the Victor Valley (Calif.) Daily Press since 1992, came to the attention of the Washington Post Writers Group through Opinion Page Editor Steve Williams, who touted her work to a syndicate sales rep during a recent visit. The Writers Group asked Benson for samples of national interest and was “blown away” by her work.

Benson earned first-place honors from the California Newspaper Publishers Association (under 75,000 circulation) in 2000 and second place in 2004. In 2005, she took both second and third place from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Inland Southern California Chapter.
