After a 25-year career as an award-winning front-page 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 Best and Wittiest package. The Best & The Wittiest is a weekly offering of at least 25 timely and thought-provoking editorial cartoons, of varied styles and views, from Hitch and other award-winning editorial cartoonists such as John Branch, Gary Brookins, David M. Hitch, Lee Judge, Jeff Koterba, Jimmy Margulies, Rick McKee, Kevin Siers and Kirk Walters.
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.
