Cartoonist Patrick O’Connor Leaves LA Weekly

Two posts dedicated to cartoonists this week? (This has to be a record, right?)

LA Weekly staffer Patrick O’Connor is leaving his gig at the alternative weekly. O’Connor posted a farewell on his blog:

This week’s cartoon is my last print cartoon for the LA Weekly. I’ve been on staff since January of 2009 and it’s been an amazing experience. All the best to the Weekly and all the talented folks who put it together. We might continue to work together in another capacity….creating online creating animated shorts…but more about that later.
