Brian McFadden Editorial Cartoons
From his studio in southeastern New England, Brian McFadden addresses news and pop culture with his irreverent political cartoons. With a liberal slant, McFadden’s cartoons tackle current issues such as climate change, gun laws and other trending topics.
McFadden grew up in Brockton, Mass., and studied mechanical engineering at Johns Hopkins University, during which time he began publishing cartoons online. After developing a weekly comic strip called Big Fat Whale, his work ran in alternative newspapers across the United States. Another comic of McFadden’s, The Strip, runs in The New York Times Sunday Review. McFadden now resides in Quincy, Mass., where he dabbles in comedy writing and performing sketch comedy in his free time.
