The Pulitzer for eCards


It isn't novel for the Pulitzer in cartooning to go to someone who isn't funny. But this year the prizegivers branched out by giving the award to Mark Fiore, a man who took the unfunniness that is the curse of his profession and brought it to a brand new medium. With his online animations, Fiore added a new dimension to an art form, proving that editorial cartoons could be more than just witless and insipid: They can be poorly paced as well.

If you'd like to see some samples of Fiore's work, go here and here. If you'd like to gouge your eyes out afterwards, you might find the discussion here useful.
