About

After a 25-year career as an award-winning cartoonist for the Des Moines Register, Duffy has moved on to greener pastures. He is currently the staff editorial cartoonist for KCCI TV, a CBS affiliate in Des Moines Iowa, as well as being the cartoonist for the alternative weekly newspaper, CityView, where he is given his own full page to let his imagination stretch its legs. He is also the staff cartoonist for the monthly political newsletter, The Hightower Report.

Duffy’s cartoons continue to appear locally in Iowa media outlets and in newspapers and on websites nationwide through King Features Syndicate’s political cartoon package. At times his cartoons shift off the beaten paths of the headlines towards news that is often overlooked and subjects of deeper meaning to society and the world as a whole. Above all else, beyond the humor or outrage, the goal of his cartoons is to make us think.
