What do TumbleweedsLittle Orphan Annie, Smokey Stover, Mary Worth, and Clifford the Big Red Dog have in common? They were all created by Hoosier cartoonists! For over a centuryIndiana has been growing cartoonists like corn, from John McCutcheon, dean of political cartoonists, to comic book artist Reed Crandall (Blackhawk), to comic strip cartoonists Dale Messick (Brenda Starr) and John Striebel (Dixie Dugan), to the successful cartoonists of today. This website and the two blogs to which it is linked are devoted to telling their stories and showing their artwork.

Political cartoonists and strip cartoonists, animators and illustrators, comic book artists and gag cartoonists--you'll find them all here, at Hoosier Cartoonists!
