Jeff MacNelly, cartoonist, dies The Associated Press CHICAGO Chicago Tribune cartoonist Jeff MacNelly, three-time Pulitzer Prize winner and creator of the daily comic strip "Shoe," died early Thursday. He was 52. He died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after battling lymphoma since late last year. "Jeff was simply the most brilliant political cartoonist of the time," Tribune editor Howard A. Tyner said. "No one had an eye and a sense of humor like his. And he was as funny personally as he was in print." MacNelly, who lived in Rappahannock County, Va., won the Pulitzer Prize for his editorial cartoons in 1972, 1978 and 1985. He won his first when he was only 24, after working at the Richmond News Leader in Virginia for just 16 months. After more than 10 years at the News Leader, he joined the Tribune in 1982. But editorial cartoons weren't his only outlet. In 1977, MacNelly began the daily comic strip "Shoe," about a newspaper's cranky editor and its two-bit hacks, all of whom just happen to be birds. The cigar-chomping boss of the Treetops Tattler was P. Martin Shoemaker, inspired by MacNelly's former boss Jim Shumaker, now a University of North Carolina professor. He also illustrated humorist Dave Barry's syndicated column. In an interview with AP Network News in 1987, MacNelly said he originally drew humans, "but it was terribly boring." "But a bird smoking a cigar is an interesting sort of bird. You really want to listen to him," MacNelly said. "And you've got flying stuff and things in trees. It's kind of zany on its face to have a bunch of birds walking around with clothes on." Horizon Funeral Home & (Vernation renter Is one of the few family-owned funeral homes In Lee County.
