Tom Meyer

Tom Meyer is a self-syndicated editorial cartoonist whose work appears in dozens of California newspapers. He was the editorial cartoonist for the San Francisco Chronicle from 1981-2009. Tom describes the beginning of his career this way:

"I was working for one of the most corrupt congressman in U.S. history, Charlies Wilson, a California Democrat. Wilson wasn't fazed by a House reprimand and censure and the scores of critical stories about him in the Los Angeles Times. He was infuriated by the Doonesbury strips that ridiculed him for his role in the Koreagate scandal. Impervious to any other criticism, what got under this callous politician's skin was cartoons. A lightbulb clicked over my head and a cartoonist was born."
