Arts Pop: Dan Martin celebrates 30 years at WeatherBird helm
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- For 30 years, artist Dan Martin has been drawing the famous St. Louis Post-Dispatch Weatherbird. On November 30, 2016, he was honored as a Media Person of the Year by the St. Louis Press Club.
Weatherbird is the longest-running daily cartoon in U.S. history. Only six cartoonists have drawn the Weatherbird since it began on February 11, 1901, Harry B. Martin , Oscar Chopin, S. Carlisle Martin, Amadee Wohlschlaeger, Albert Schweitzer, and, since 1986, Dan Martin. By the way, none of the three Martins are related.
