Steve Greenberg laid off from Ventura County Star
I just received an email from Steve Greenberg telling me that his job with the Ventura County Star will be eliminated as of Nov. 30. Since 2002, Steve has been with the paper doing editorial graphics and editorial cartoons as a secondary position. He tells me as the single artist, he thought his position was pretty safe and didn’t see this one coming.
The Star is part of the E.W. Scripps chain, which announced it was eliminating 400 positions – including whole art departments.
Steve says his cartoons will continue on Daryl Cagle’s site and will try to pick up additional freelance work.
UPDATED: Steve asks for me to add his e-mail address if you all want to contact him directly. His e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATED, again: Steve is interviewed by Mike Cavna at the WashPo.
