KAL: 35 Years as an International Editorial Cartoonist

The Walters welcomes back Kevin 'KAL' Kallaugher, long-time Baltimore Sun editorial cartoonist, and current cartoonist for The Economist.  Best known for his internationally syndicated political cartoons that have appeared in over 100 publications worldwide, KAL will reference political cartoons in the special exhibition New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville and talk about his 35 years as an international editorial cartoonist.  Book-signing of KAL’s latest book follows.  Books available for purchase in the Museum Store.

About Kal:
After graduating from Harvard College with honors in 1977, Kevin embarked on a bicycle tour of the British Isles, where he joined the Brighton Basketball Club as a player and coach. After the club hit financial difficulties, Kevin drew caricatures of tourists in Trafalgar Square and on Brighton Pier. In March 1978, The Economist recruited him to become their first resident cartoonist in their 145 year history.

Kevin spent the next 10 years working in London as a cartoonist for such publications as The Observer, The Sunday Telegraph, Today and The Mail on Sunday.  Kevin returned to the U.S. in 1988 to join The Baltimore Sun as its editorial cartoonist. Between 1988 and 2006, he drew over 4000 cartoons for The Sun while continuing to draw two cartoons per week for The Economist.

KAL's work for The Sun and The Economist has appeared in more than 100 publications worldwide, including Le Monde, Der Spiegel, Pravda, Krokodil, Daily Yomiuri, The Australian, The International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, and The Washington Post. His cartoons are distributed worldwide by Cartoonarts International and the New York Times Syndicate.

In 1995, Kevin was invited by The Walter's Art Gallery to help curate the celebrated exhibit "Worth a Thousand Words: A Picture of Contemporary Political Satire". In 2006, The Walters mounted a major retrospective exhibition of Kevin's cartoons titled "Mightier than The Sword: The Satirical Pen of KAL". Kevin's work has also been exhibited at the Tate Gallery in London and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. He has had one man exhibitions in London, New York, Washington, and Baltimore.

In 1999, The World Encyclopedia of Cartoons said of Kevin "Commanding a masterful style, Kallaugher stands among the premier caricaturists of the (twentieth) century."
