Watch Online
A line-drawing cartoon of a balding, bespectacled man in a button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up, sitting in an office chair in a room full of file cabinets, drawing a caricature of Ronald Reagan as a clown on a large drawing board, and raising his arm triumphantly into the air with three fingers splayed out “No one’s ever accused me of being objective…”
—Paul Conrad

Over the span of his 50-year career, legendary editorial cartoonist Paul Conrad has lampooned 11 presidents, won three Pulitzers, earned a spot on Nixon’s Enemies List and tackled every major political issue in America.  

Meet one of the world’s more extraordinary—and fiercely independent—artists and journalists.
