Ann Carolyn Telnaes is an editorial cartoonist. Unlike many editorial cartoonists, Telnaes does not draw for any one set newspaper, and her cartoons are instead syndicated across the United States. In 2001, she became the second woman cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning. She studied with the Character Animation program at California Institute of the Arts.
Her cartoons tend to be quite liberal in tone and have a special focus on women's issues, such as burkas, third world pregnancy and abortion rights. A former animator at Disney, her cartoons are easily recognizable for their fluid lines and bright colors.
Her animations are featured on The Washington Post's website.
