UCI alumnus wins second Pulitzer for editorial cartooning

UC Irvine alumnus and editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez has drawn his second Pulitzer Prize for what the judges called his “provocative cartoons.” Winners were announced Monday, April 7. Ramirez is a senior editor and the editorial cartoonist for Investor’s Business Daily. He received his first Pulitzer for editorial cartooning in 1994, when he was with The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, Tenn. Ramirez earned a double bachelor’s in studio art and art history from UCI in 1984, and his early editorial cartoons ran in the student newspaper. He also received the university’s highest honor, the Medal, in 1997.
