DES MOINES, Iowa After being seen on the front page of the Des Moines Register for 25 years, award-winning cartoonist Brian Duffy’s work will now be seen on KCCI NewsChannel 8 and KCCI.com. Beginning May 5th, KCCI NewsChannel 8 viewers will be able to see Duffy’s cartoons animate on their TV screens Tuesdays & Thursdays at 6pm & 10pm. The cartoons will also be available for viewing on KCCI.com Wednesdays and Fridays. “Duffy’s creative wit and style have been sorely missed, and we are delighted to be able to bring him back and showcase his great work,” says KCCI News Director Dave Busiek. “Being able to animate his cartoons and see them come to life will be even better than just the still image you used to see in the newspaper.” Brian Duffy is an award-winning cartoonist whose work had been anchored on the front page of the Des Moines Register for twenty-five years, from 1983-2008. He has been working as a cartoonist and illustrator for more than 30 years. He has received numerous Best of Gannett awards, two consecutive World Hunger Media awards, the Clarion Award and was a finalist for the prestigious John Fischetti Award for editorial cartooning. His two books are "A Decade of Duffy" published in 1993 and "More of Duffy," published in 1995. His work continues to be seen locally in the weekly Cityview newspaper, and around the state through Duffy’s Iowa Syndicate. King Features Syndicate nationally syndicates Duffy’s cartoons in over 400 newspapers. His work can also be seen on his website www.duffyink.com. Duffy attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. He lives in West Des Moines with his wife and four children.
