Biography

Joel Pett, winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, has been at the Lexington Herald-Leader since 1984. His cartoons have appeared in hundreds of newspapers and magazines nationwide, including the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Boston Globe. He is a weekly contributor to USA Today, writes a regular feature on cartoons for the Los Aangles Times, and does a monthly cartoon for the educational journal Phi Delta Kappan.

Mr. Pett also received the 1999 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for cartoons highlighting the plight of the disadvantaged, and the 1995 Global Media Award for cartoons on population issues. He is a past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, and a past Pulitzer juror. He has conducted three overseas seminars on editorial cartooning as a guest speaker of the U.S. State Department.

Having observed life in over twenty-five countries, from his boyhood home in Nigeria, down the Amazon, to Red Square, Tiananmen Square, and beyond, Joel Pett sums up his philosophy simply: "Hello, God? We could use some help down here."

Mr. Pett's cartoons are available in five paperback editions, the most recent being Thinking Inside the Box. He is proudest of a college intramural golf title, and of shutting out a University of Kentucky basketball player in a celebrity game of HORSE. His list of embarrassments is endless.
