One of the most widely syndicated editorial cartoonists in the world, Monte Wolverton has produced his ascerbic visual political commentary for over 15 years. He is syndicated by Caglecartoons to over 850 publications weekly, and appears weekly in the LA Daily News.
As son of legendary cartoonist Basil Wolverton, Monte assimilated a rich graphic diet throughout his childhood in the Portland, Oregon area. During college in the creatively fertile Southern California of the late 60s, he launched his career working in a small design group. He gained additional training at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design, and studied editorial photography with Look magazine's Earl Theison. Later, in the Seattle and Portland areas, Wolverton ran an innovative design business, producing corporate image, advertising, publication design and comic illustration. His clients included the US Forest Service, Peterson publishing and numerous local clients.
In the late 1980s Wolverton returned to Southern California as design director for Plain Truth, a large, faith-based publishing concern, leading a group of over 20 art directors, illustrators and photographers in producing three magazines and other publications and promotional materials. In 1994 he earned an interdisciplinary MA in creativity studies and management from Vermont's Goddard College.
In the late 1990s his humorous
illustrations were featured regularly in MAD magazine.
Wolverton resides in Washington State with his two American Rat Terriers, Meg and Kirby.
