Paul Szep was born in the darkest Canada, which accounts for the way he talks, eh? He was a hockey player and worked in the steel mills, which accounts for the way he thinks. He is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Ontario.
He has won two Pulitzer Prizes, international Thomas Nast Prize, two Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi prizes, a National Headliner Award and National Cartoonists Society awards for editorial and sport cartooning. He was a fellow at Harvard.
He has two great children, Amy and Jason.
He is a single-digit golfer, which only means he plays way too much golf and draws far too few cartoons.
