About this CartoonThe Authors

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.

Brian Duffy

Brian Duffy is the cartoonist of record for the Iowa Caucuses. Every presidential aspirant has had to pass through his pen over the last 27 years. From his perch in Des Moines, he has chronicled the winners, the runners-up, the also-rans, and the ones that never should have run. In between the Caucuses he exercises his wrist by chronicling the events that matter in people’s lives.

He has done illustrations and posters for many local and national companies. Two collections of his cartoons have been published, A Decade of Duffy (1993) and More of Duffy (1995).

An avid cyclist, this former host of RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) has gone on to bigger and more ill-advised events such as the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race In Colorado, which tops out at 12,700 feet. Duffy has used these experiences in his sports drawing that appears in Momentum Magazine, a monthly outdoors sports magazine​​.
