Best Local Cartoonist St. Louis 2012 - Dan Zettwoch
With the detail of a vintage biology chart, frequent Riverfront Times contributor Dan Zettwoch steers Midwestern — often St. Louis — history lessons into eye-popping, sometimes grotesque, illustrations of the human kind. They can be dizzying, intricate and informative, all at once. It's a tacky yet endearing plaid that's seamed together with themes of nostalgic minutiae and American beauty. Zettwoch's greatest hits include a tutorial on the greatness of Redd Foxx, a Mike "Moon Man" Shannon tribute and a fun-as-hell win-probability chart of the Cardinals historic (and extremely improbable) victory in Game Six of the 2011 World Series.
