An evening with Dwane Powell at the City of Raleigh Museum

Dwane Powell has inked over 15,000 cartoons during his career that have caricatured presidents, politicians, and North Carolina notables. Powell began cartooning for The News & Observer in 1975 and continues to ink images for Sunday editions. Growing up in rural Arkansas, Powell studied agribusiness at the University of Arkansas but was drawn to the cartoons he saw in Collier’s and The Saturday Evening Post. When his hometown paper offered him $5 a cartoon, his lifelong passion began. Powell went on to win industry recognition including the Overseas Press Club Award for Excellence in Cartooning and the National Headliners Club Award for Outstanding Editorial Cartoons.
