Keith Taylor cartoon

Turns out we seriously shortchanged Keith Taylor [Best blog, best Trump smackdowns, second best suburb, Inside Reports, Nov. 13]. Well, it’s complicated, as errors usually are. When we first reported the results of the annual Chicago Reader Best of Chicago survey, we initially gave Keith too much credit. We said he won Best Comics Illustrator for his marvelous Trump takedowns. In reality (a concept unfamiliar to the subject of his cartoons), Keith placed third in that category. 

But we gave Keith far too little credit for the Best Visual Artist category, which he flat-out won. The ever-unassuming Keith’s reaction? “I didn’t even know I was up for that.”

Either category, Keith Taylor is one talented artist. Congratulations and let us know if we got anything else wrong.
