Pat Bagley has been the editorial cartoonist for The Salt Lake Tribune for 32 years. An acknowledged master illustrator and commentator on the comic politics of Red-state Utah, Bagley’s national and world cartoons have also appeared in publications such as Time, The Irish Times, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times. One of the most popular sydicated cartoonists with politicalcartoons.com, Bagley has also won prestigious cartooning awards, including the 2009 Herblock Award. His 2005 book, “Clueless Goerge Goes to War,” was lauded as one of the most radiocative critiques of President George W. Bush’s decision to invade and occupy Iraq.
Bagley's familiarity with politics is in his DNA. He was born in Salt Lake City but raised in Oceanside, California where his father worked in city government. The elder Bagley worked his way up from a draftsman in the Oceanside planning department to city manager and then ran for mayor and successfully served three terms. Watching the evening news and reading the newspaper was a popular Bagley family activity.
Bagley served an LDS mission to Bolivia and later cut his teeth on cartooning at the BYU school newspaper, The Daily Universe. He currently describes himself as "Mormon Emeritus."
Bagley has two sons, Miles and Alec, a dog (Balto) and a cat (Tiger).
