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: Thanksgiving 2015 by Smigliano
Salem News: Thanksgiving 2015
My cartoon from the 11/26/2015 SALEM NEWS. In a way, the paper itself proved the point of my cartoon. When I bought the paper this morning, it was HUGE, at least FIVE TIMES as thick as it normally is because of all the Black Friday sales flyers and inserts (which I promptly tossed into the recycling bin) shoved inside. Them's the times, I guess. 
Salem News: Tobacco Revenue by Smigliano
Salem News: Tobacco Revenue
For the high revenue Massachusetts cigarette taxes-among the highest in the nation-are getting, very little of that revenue is going to smoking cessation and education programs. My cartoon as published in the 11/19/2015 SALEM NEWS.
Salem News: Massage Parlor Bill by Smigliano
Salem News: Massage Parlor Bill
A chain of Massage Parlors is trying to get the Sunday Blue laws pertaining to their industry repealed, but without the pay scale that other workers get. My cartoon as published in the 11/16/2015 SALEM NEWS.
