Before she began a career as an editorial cartoonist, Ann Telnaes, the second woman ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning, trained in character animation at the California Institute of the Arts and worked as a designer for Walt Disney Imagineering. Telnaes' early editorial cartoons, including her Pulitzer prize winners, were produced with pen, chalk, and ink on paper for eventual print publication. More recently, Telnaes has joined her animation training with her well-known reputation for editorial cartoons, producing animated editorial cartoons for the Washington Post website every Wednesday and Friday. Like her print cartoons, her animations explore hot-topic issues. Featured here are two animations from 2012 about health care: the first illustrates state requirements for ultrasounds before abortion, the second the very vocal debates over health care reform legislation.
