Left to right: Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher, Rob Rogers and Patrick Chappatte.

Join this “How I Did It” program with Kevin (KAL) Kallaugher, who has won many of the OPC’s Best Cartoon Awards over the years, as he discusses his work and craft with past winners Rob Rogers and Patrick Chappatte.

The OPC’s goal with “How I did it” is to offer our many freelance members the opportunity to interact with highly successful journalists and OPC Award winners. Topics will include how to pitch a story, secure funding, interact with editors and everything in between.

Registrants will receive an email with the link to join the Zoom call about an hour before the program on May 19.

RSVP for the program here. 

Kallaugher most recently won the OPC’s Best Cartoon award for his work in 2020, in which judges said he “seems like a cartoonist transported from a bygone era, while still creating compelling work that resonates with today’s audience.”

His winning cartoons and a video of his acceptance remarks can be found on the awards page here.

Rogers won the 2012 Best Cartoon Award for his work in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and before that won the award for work in 1999.

Chappatte won the award for his work in The New York Times in 2018 and 2015, and won the 2011 award for cartoons in the International Herald Tribune.
