Chris Smigliano
Artist | Professional | Other
United States
I 'm a freelance cartoonist who does works such as local-issue themed cartoons for the editorial page of the SALEM NEWS in Massachusetts. I'm probably best known for my comic strip FOR ART'S SAKE that was a feature in THE COMICS BUYER'S GUIDE for over 20 years until the publication's end in 2012. I am also active in Muppet fandom as a contributor to the TOUGHPIGS fansite. I wish to use this page to showcase samples of my work both old and new.


Salem News: Highland Avenue Study by Smigliano
Salem News: Highland Avenue Study
Highland Avenue is a stretch of Highway that goes from Salem into Lynn…It's a MAJOR traffic area, very cluttered and rocky, many areas have inadequate sidewalks and even more have NO sidewalk at all. It's so bad cyclists will not go on it unless they absolutely have to, and it's even worse for pedestrians, for walking is very high risk. The Mass Dept. of Transportation recently completed a study of the area, hoping to get improvements going, especially as Salem plans to build a multiscreen entertainment center in the area. My cartoon for the 02/02/2016 SALEM NEWS.
Possible T Fare Hikes by Smigliano
Possible T Fare Hikes

In the throe of continuing mechanical problems with its trains, complaints about its lousy service and the memories of last winter, the Massachusetts Commuter Rail system is considering a possible fare hike, angering many commuters who are paying a lot NOW. My cartoon as published in the 01/28/2016 SALEM NEWS.
