Luckovich, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist who many love (or love to hate), has published three books of his cartoons: "Lotsa Luckovich," "Four More Wars!" and the recently-released "A Very Stable Genius." He's a 1982 graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in political science.
The winning cartoonists are "immediately recognizable ... for their distinctive artistry and pointed commentary," said Andrea Neal, board chair of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, which presents the award annually. "These talented gentlemen, representing all sides of the political spectrum, teach us that humor can go a long way in overcoming the polarization that has marked our country's recent political debates."
