By all accounts, I should be a Democrat, having grown up in a poor family, living with a physical handicap, and being an artist. But by applying logic and studying the effects of history, it is clearly obvious to me that conservatism holds a far better answer to life than liberalism or the solutions that Democrats propose.
I come from an illustration background. For many years, I worked both as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, creating illustrations for clients like Embassy Suites, Frontier Airlines, and Primedia. In 1996, I submitted a cartoon to my local newspaper regarding a stadium tax the city wanted to impose on the citizens. To my surprise, they published it. Though nothing came of it at that time, I treasured the experience. Today, I would like to take my love of politics and art and begin a career as a conservative political cartoonist. It is about time the RIGHT perspective was inked.
“Benjamin is a talented illustrator and insightful cartoonist, too. A great member of the Colorado Alliance of Illustrators for many years now, in addition to producing beautiful children’s books and paintings with also extremely multi-talented wife Cherish. I look forward to seeing more politixcartoons at the .com and in papers and magazines!”

“Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention.”
–Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist
“Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben’s pen.”
