In an interview airing on CNN's John King U.S.A., Columbus College of Art & Design trustee Jeff Stahler (CCAD, '77) talks about what inspires his editorial cartoons.

During the interview, which aired Sept. 7, Stahler discusses cartoons that reflect his perspective on American politics, the 2010 midterm election, and the economy. Stahler explains that he tries to "capture the moment, capture what people are thinking."

Editorial cartoonist for The Columbus Dispatch, Stahler's work is distributed worldwide by Newspaper Enterprise Association. His cartoons appear every week in USA Today and are frequently reprinted in major magazines and newspapers, including Newsweek and The New York Times.

Stahler also creates the whimsical slice-of-life comic panel Moderately Confused for Newspaper Enterprise Association.
