STATEWIDE (WIS) - WIS is offering a new feature. We'll be posting editorial cartoonist Robert Ariail's work on!

Ariail has won many national and regional awards for his work.

He's also been a finalist (the top three among nominees) for the Pulitzer Prize twice — in 1995 and 2000.

Ariail is a Columbia native and University of South Carolina graduate.

He is syndicated to over 600 newspapers nationwide through United Media, and has published three collections of his cartoons. The most recent, Ariail!!!, was one of Columbia's best-selling books in 2001.
