George Danby

George Danby, editorial cartoonist, has been drawing and publishing cartoons since he was in high school. His first cartoons appeared in the Providence (RI) Journal, when he was 15 years old. He was the contributing cartoonist for The Bangor Daily News while in school. He became staff editorial cartoonist at the New Haven (Conn.) Register in 1979.  Danby joined the Providence paper six years later as staff editorial cartoonist, before joining the Bangor paper as its full time cartoonist in 1988.

Syndicated with McNaught Syndicate and Editors Press Service, Danby’s work has appeared in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and National Review, plus numerous weekly and daily newspapers. He has drawn more than 25,000 cartoons since 1974. Frankly, he’s exhausted!
