How do you make sense of a complicated world in a single panel? Award-winning political cartoonists Pedro X. Molina and Rob Rogers provide a peek into their creative process, from headline to sketchbook to finished product.

Both men have paid a high price for their work. Molina was forced to flee Nicaragua with his family in December 2018 during a crackdown on dissent. Rogers was fired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that same year for his cartoons critical of Donald Trump. They will discuss their experiences, then share their screens and let us watch their creations take shape. “Inside the Cartoonist’s Mind” is organized by Ithaca City of Asylum (ICOA) and funded by the Freedom to Read Foundation, affiliated with the American Library Association.
