altWe are deeply saddened to inform the National Free Press readers and visitors that Joel Barbee, an NFP Editorial Cartoonist has passed away.

The artist, father, husband and friend to many, passed away on Thursday, May 20th.

Joel Barbee first appeared in the NFP during the last half of 2006. His cartoons were a wonderful addition and they came into the inbox faster than I could keep up with. I often quipped that Joel cranked out toons like I inhaled coffee.

Our thoughts go out to the Barbee family, their friends and acquaintances during this trying moment in time.

The following is information regarding services (California), should you wish to attend…

Joel Barbee Celebration of Life: He was a beautiful light in this life and filled those around him with smiles and laughter. He was a great man and the world becomes a smaller place without his wonderful smile.

Thursday May 27th, 2:00 PM at Talega Life Church 1040 Calle Negocio, San Clemente Ca 92673. Pondo and Nick Vleisides will officiate and share some great memories of Uncle Joel. We also will have some of his incredible art work on display. Joel was an artist for Disney, Hallmark, Carls Junior, Famous Paintings and the Register political cartoonist for over ten years.

Thank you Joel for sharing your talent and time with us. We will seriously miss you.

National Doodle Day!National Doodle Day, was founded as a way to have fun while raising funds that help people whose lives are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. Since 2004, over £120,000 has been raised to help support the work of two charities, Epilepsy Action and the Neurofibromatosis Association.

The fundraising success is mainly due to the support of many celebrities from the worlds of TV, film, theatre, politics, sport and the arts, who donate their doodles and drawings for sale and auction, with all proceeds going towards the effort. Funds raised from the Doodle Day auction will go to support education, advocacy, coalitions, and research for treatments and a cure.

ImageInspired by the Reporters Without Borders editorial cartoon (The Russian School of Journalism) regarding the state of journalism in Russia, G. Tod Slone of the American Dissident (Blog), created a rendition of his own entitled The American School of Journalism.

The American Dissident
(Website), was created as an IDEAL in direct opposition to the mass of indistinguishable journals that serve literature as status-quo-friendly entertainment and diversion. It seeks instead to publish literature that questions and challenges that status quo. It seeks to promote the ideal of DEMOCRACY (vigorous debate, freedom of speech and expression, and encouraged criticism of all institutions and icons).

Our hat goes off to Mr. Slone for his cartoons and his effort to uphold democracy in America.

ImageWe’re thrilled to announce that one of our Editorial Cartoonists, MJ, has had another Cartoon chosen for the second year in a row for Charles Brookes' “The Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year for 2010”!

From the U.S. and Canada, Charles Brooks collects and compiles the best editorial cartoons that are available and then publishes them in the Pelican Publishing’s ‘Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year!’ annual edition series that was started in 1972.

The National Free Press' Editorial Cartoonist MJ, brings a special brand of political cartooning into the social commentary arena. Combining wit and insight, MJ portrays the current headline-making events and controversial issues through each year with a visual feast of the foibles and failings of all politicians - none are spared, no matter their party affiliation.
