Scott Stantis draws five editorial cartoons a week for the Chicago Tribune and is also a member of the Tribune's editorial board. His editorial cartoons are syndicated in over 400 newspapers around the world. He also creates the comic strip "Prickly City," which is syndicated in over 125 newspapers.

On Mondays he does a self-described "weekly rant" for WGN America's 9 pm newscast.  He also teams up with Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn to do a weekly podcast called "The Prickly Pair Podcast."

Scott writes, "I was born in San Diego. Went to junior and senior high school in Madison, Wisconsin.  Returned to Southern California where I feel in love with editorial cartooning and my wife of three decades, Janien Fadich. We now live in Chicago and have two grown sons."

Scott joined the Tribune staff as editorial cartoonist in 2009.

About the Cigar Society of Chicago

ONE OF THE OLDEST AND greatest traditions of the city clubs of Chicago is the discussion of intellectual, social, legal, artistic, historical, scientific, musical, theatrical, and philosophical issues in the company of educated, bright, and appropriately provocative individuals, all under the beneficent influence of substantial amounts of tobacco and spirits.  The Cigar Society of Chicago embraces this tradition and extends it with its Informal Smokers, University Series lectures, and Cigar Society Dinners, in which cigars, and from time to time pipes and cigarettes, appear as an important component of our version of the classical symposium.  To be included in the Cigar Society's mailing list, write to the Secretary at
