St. Paul native Steve Sack is the 2013 Pulitzer Prize winner for editorial cartooning. Judges noted Sack’s “diverse collection of cartoons, using an original style and clever ideas to drive home his unmistakable point of view.” Upon winning the award, the ever-humble Sack downplayed his immense skill: "My job description is simple. I read the paper, crack a joke, and draw a picture," he told the newsroom. He's been the Star Tribune's editorial cartoonist since 1981 and was a Pulitzer finalist in 2004. The Pulitzer judges said Sack stood apart because of his “vivid, distinctive cartoons that used creative metaphors for high-impact results.” Sack is a member of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. He’s won numerous national honors for his work, including a Sigma Delta Chi Award (2003), National Headliner Award (2003), Scripps-National Journalism Award (2004) and the Berryman Award from the National Press Foundation (2006.) He attended the University of Minnesota, where he illustrated features and drew editorial cartoons for the Minnesota Daily, the school’s newspaper. He later served as staff cartoonist for the Journal-Gazette in Fort Wayne, Ind. He now lives in Bloomington, Minn. His personal website is
