He was awarded the first place Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Cartooning in 1998 and again in 2003. He has also been awarded the Media Alliance Meritorious Achievement Award for Excellence in Journalism, the Society of Professional Journalists’ James Madison Freedom of Information Award, the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism, and the Association for Education in Journalism Professional Freedom and Responsiblity Award.

In the early years of the Bush administration, his work was adapted into a series of online animations, which can be viewed at thismodernworld.com/animation-and-film. He has been blogging since October of 2001, making him one of the earliest pioneers of the liberal blogosphere. He is the author of nine previous cartoon compilations and one book for children, and in 2009 collaborated with the band Pearl Jam to create the artwork for their album, Backspacer.

A long time resident of both San Francisco and Brooklyn, he currently lives just outside of New Haven, Connecticut with his wife and son.
