When John Trever moved to Albuquerque 45 years ago, he quickly learned that while New Mexico may often lack sufficient rainfall, there was never a drought of cartoon material. Join the Albuquerque Journal‘s editorial cartoonist for a light-hearted look at the highlights and low-lights of life and politics in New Mexico, while gaining insight into the once-thriving but now endangered craft of newspaper political cartooning.

John Trever’s editorial cartoons for the Albuquerque Journal have been syndicated throughout the United States and reprinted in a wide variety of magazines and books. Educated at Syracuse University and the University of Chicago, he has received numerous national and local awards and published four collections of his cartoons, including the recently-released, “The Art and Humor of John Trever.” Officially retired since 2010, he continues to draw a weekly commentary for the Sunday Journal.
