Yet another editorial cartoonist has lost a job.
Gordon Campbell was let go by the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin of Ontario, Calif., EditorialCartoonists.com reported today.
“It was not unexpected but it was nonetheless painful,” Gordon told the site. “After 16 years of ink-stained bliss my paper divorced me! And just as the election year was getting interesting!”
Campbell had been “sort of a permanent stringer” for just over a decade before becoming a staff cartoonist at the California paper in 2003.
He’d like to continue selling his cartoons on a freelance basis, but isn’t hopeful. “I just wish there was an economically viable alternative industry to hop over to,” Campbell said.
