|Alma mater||St. Olaf College|

Ward Sutton is an American illustrator, cartoonist and writer born in Minneapolis and based in New York City. His comic strip, "Sutton Impact" (formerly "Schlock 'n' Roll"), was published in The Village Voice from 1995 to 2007. In 2018, Sutton won the Herblock Prize for his work.
Sutton also illustrates and writes a bi-weekly cartoon in TV Guide, "That's Entertoonment," and has contributed cartoons and illustrations to the op-ed pages of The New York Times and to Rolling Stone, Time, The Nation, Entertainment Weekly and The New Yorker. He also illustrates and writes a cartoon for The Onion under the pseudonym of "Stan Kelly," depicting the wrong-headed one-panels of an ultraconservative middle-aged cartoonist. According to Onion President Sean Mills in an interview with Wikinews, the cartoon has generated "a lot of heat." "He has a very unique take on what is going on in the world," said Mills, "and it does tend to upset some people, but that’s the job of an editorial cartoonist, to be a provocateur."
In addition to his work for print media, Sutton designed the animation for the opening credits of the television show Strangers with Candy, and has created animation for HBO, VH-1, and TV Land. He has also designed silk-screened posters for a variety of musical acts, including Beck, Radiohead, Phish, and Pearl Jam.
