Dee Bonner Biography

Dennis J (Dee) Bonner is a freelance cartoonist and illustrator whose work has appeared in newspapers, periodicals, trade publications, books and advertisements.

He majored in marketing and graduated from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business with a Bachelor's degree in Business. He resides in Shelbyville, Indiana.

For many years, Bonner was the full-time advertising director and part-time, freelance editorial cartoonist for The Shelbyville News, a daily community newspaper located in central Indiana. During his tenure, Bonner produced over 1,500 cartoons that resulted in a large, loyal, local readership. His unique hybrid of editorial, political and social cartoons have earned numerous state and national awards.

His work has been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, the National Newspaper Association and Bonner has twice been named Indiana's "Best Cartoonist" by the Hoosier State Press Association.

On the other hand, Bonner's work has been called silly, foolish, ignorant, crude, stupid, shameful, subversive and incomprehensible. In addition, Bonner has personally been cursed, berated, defamed, blamed, maligned, vilified and slandered.

He sincerely appreciates the attention.
