Editorial Cartoons by Rick Baldwin


I was editorial cartoonist for Knoxville, Tennessee’s alt-weekly, Metro Pulse, from 1997 – 2002 and Chattanooga, Tennessee’s alt-weekly, The Pulse, from 2004 – 2016. I currently self-syndicate editorial cartoons on a freelance basis. Cartoons which appear here may be used with no charge in non commercial, digital publications and on social media. They may not be edited except for resizing. Please give proper artist and copyright credit (© Rick Baldwin) and, when possible, a link back to this site. For commercial use of my cartoons, please visit my CartoonStock page or contact me regarding other project needs.

If you would like to help continue the “free use” of my cartoons, or to just send a little extra cartoonist support, feel free to donate to my PayPal. Many thanks to those who choose to help out!
