Feiffer draws WGA honor

Scripter earns lifetime achievement prize

The WGA West’s Animation Writers Caucus has tapped Jules Feiffer to receive its Animation Writing Award for lifetime achievement.

Feiffer will be feted at the Writers Guild Awards on Feb. 11 at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles and simultaneously at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York.

Feiffer’s film credits include “Little Murders” and “Carnal Knowledge,” for which he received WGA nominations, along with “Popeye.” In 2004, Feiffer received the Ian McLellan Hunter Memorial Award for lifetime achievement in writing from the WGA East.

Feiffer is best known as an editorial cartoonist, as well as a playwright, novelist, screenwriter and author of children’s books. His cartoon strip “Feiffer” appeared in the Village Voice from 1956-97.

He’s the only cartoonist to have a comic strip that ran regularly in New York Times. In 1997, he became a senior fellow in the National Arts Journalism Program at Columbia U.’s Graduate School of Journalism.
