Cartoonist explains evolution of his gay marriage stance

Nov 06, 2013

Generally, editorial cartoons arrive without explanation. Really, that’s appropriate, because a good cartoon requires no explanation from the artist.

But Scott Stantis of the Chicago Tribune, whose political cartoons — like the editorial section in which they appear — generally lean to the conservative side, felt compelled to send a few words of context when he delivered today’s cartoon to his syndicated clients.

Here’s Stantis’ note:

Full disclosure here. Ten years ago I would not have drawn this cartoon. On the contrary, in my editorial cartoons and in my comic strip, Prickly City, I was adamently opposed to the notion of gay marriage.
