The cartoon panel “Non Sequitur” replaces “Real Life Adventures” today on the People page. The panel is drawn by David Wiley Miller, who goes by Wiley.
Wiley began drawing “Non Sequitur” in February, 1992. The same year, the cartoon was voted Best Comic Strip of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society. A collection of “Non Sequitur” cartoons was published in 1993, titled “Dead Lawyers and Other Pleasant Thoughts.”
Prior to “Non Sequitur,” Wiley drew the comic strip “Fenton.” In 1991, he was awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism award for editorial cartooning. He has also free-lanced for magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post. He is one of two cartoonists who draw the new strip “Us and Them.”
Regarding “Non Sequitur,” Wiley has said, “Humor knows no bounds and neither do my cartoons. My approach is ridiculously simple: produce the funniest, best drawn cartoon possible, regardless of theme, subject matter or setting.”
The Washington Post Writers Group, which distributes “Non Sequitur,” says it “pokes fun at those who take themselves too seriously.” , DataTimes
