Houston, TX — 5, May 2022 — Counterpoint Media, an independent organization of political cartoonists of all perspectives, will represent former Washington Post syndicated editorial cartoonists and more beginning on June 1st. The initial list of cartoonists for licensing and syndication includes: Clay Bennett, Lisa Benson, Tim Campbell, Jeff Danziger, Jack Ohman, and current Counterpoint contributor Pedro X. Molina. Counterpoint will service each cartoonist’s existing clients while eventually expanding the roster of talent available.
The last few years have proven tough for political cartoonists – economic pressures on newsrooms have led to major publications eliminating the role of editorial cartoonists, and some have stopped printing cartoons entirely.
Counterpoint was created to explore new avenues of monetization that preserve both the art form itself and the editorial independence of each artist. The Counterpoint newsletter features the rotating work of 16 cartoonists from all over the United States, each with their own unique artistic talent and political views.
