Drew Sheneman (c. 1975) is an American editorial cartoonist. His work, which has appeared in The Star-Ledger of Newark, New Jersey, since 1998, is nationally syndicated by Tribune Media Services.


Sheneman was raised in New Jersey, but he attended college at Central Michigan University, where he began cartooning for the college's newspaper, Central Michigan Life. While he was in college, he interned at The Detroit News and The Oakland Press.[1] During his college years, he was recognized by the Scripps Howard Foundation, which gave him a National Journalism Award and stated, "What we have in Drew Sheneman is a thoroughly professional cartoonist ready to move directly to a metropolitan newspaper and perform his stint on the editorial page." [2] In 1998, Sheneman graduated from CMU with an art degree.[1]

Upon his graduation from college, Sheneman was hired by The Star Ledger, becoming the youngest full-time editorial cartoonist in the United States at the age of 23.[1] His cartoons, which are syndicated nationally by TMS, have also appeared in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post, among others.[1] Sheneman joined many other cartoonists at the 2004 Republican National Convention and 2004 Democratic National Convention, traveling to New York City and Boston, respectively, to cover the proceedings. He has not visited any such conventions since then.[3]

"Cowboy," a 2003 editorial cartoon Sheneman published fifteen days before the United States invaded Iraq, won him the Vic Cantone Editorial Cartoon Award from the New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.[4]

Sheneman lives in Bedminster Township with his family.[1]


Sheneman has won several awards for his editorial cartooning:

As the governor of a state with a history of being a punchline, you'd think think Christie would be a little more aware about the appearances of making a sweetheart deal with one of the world's premier oil producers/polluters. You would be wrong.

According to the NFL and the federal government, sports betting is a big no-no outside of Nevada. What's not a big no-no are fantasy leagues, final four pools, one week fantasy leagues etc. Leagues like the NFL benefit greatly from gambling in the form ...

The governor did lots of other stuff this summer, too. He went to Iowa...a lot. He went to New Hampshire...a lot. One thing he didn't do? His job. The one he was elected to do and the one he's currently being paid to avoid.

Hey, I get it. The governor thinks he's still running for president, so the idea of him backing the president's Clean Power Plan is a non-starter. But you'd think he'd be a little more aware of the consequences of ignoring global climate change. Of ...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the governor is a fancy man and he likes fancy things. He just doesn't like to pay for them himself. If he wants to stop being governor to run for president, fine, but we shouldn't have to pick up his room ...
