Cartoonist Matt Wuerker of the Washington, D.C., newspaper Politico has elevated political humor to an art form, using his pen to poke fun and make a powerful point. This year Wuerker received the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning.
Wuerker said the idea for this cover for the "Swimsuit Edition" of "Bankers Illustrated" came to him while on a supermarket checkout line, looking at Sports Illustrated: "It occurred to me that really it should be applied to bankers instead - nearly naked greed, bodacious bottom lines. This was a lot of fun to draw."
