Rob Rogers MFA ’84 Interviewed by Bustle about his Viral Gun Control Cartoon
After publishing a cartoon on gun control in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2014, Rob Rogers’ (MFA ’84) work is once again getting recirculated on social media following the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
Mehreen Kasana writes for Bustle: “Rogers explains that seeing his cartoon get shared again and again is both encouraging and dismaying. ‘I draw to get people to talk about issues,’ Rogers says. ‘People are sharing the cartoon again and again, and that’s the goal. The goal is get the dialogue started. At the same time, it’s also very sad because it shows we still have to make an argument for gun control. I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I’ve done a lot of gun control cartoons.'”
