Jeff Bacon


Jeff Bacon’s first Navy Times cartoon was published in March 1986.  By the end of that year, the panel was titled “Broadside” and has appeared weekly ever since.  In 2006, his Marine-oriented cartoon “Greenside” began its run in Marine Corps Times. 

His art has been printed in numerous government publications, professional papers, and a lot of cubicles around the world.  His cartoons have been displayed at the Navy Art Gallery and the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., and have been published in three books:  The Best of Broadside, Book II: the Rest of Broadside, and 20 Years of Broadside.  He donates artwork to the Navy Memorial and various non-profit groups throughout the year, and has been a featured speaker for numerous commands and organizations around the world. 

A member of the National Cartoonists Society, he has been active in the “Support the Troops” initiative, arranging visits by professional cartoonists to active duty and VA hospitals, in order to give back to those who served.  He has also traveled with other cartoonists on USO-sponsored trips to combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the troops. 

He is a Distinguished Graduate of the Naval Postgraduate School (because of the cartoons, not the grades), and was honored in 2008 with a Special Recognition Award by the Surface Navy Association.

In May of 2009 he was awarded the Silver T-Square by the National Cartoonists Society for his efforts in supporting the troops.  "The Silver T-Square is awarded, by unanimous vote of the NCS Board of Directors, to persons who have demonstrated outstanding dedication or service to the Society or the profession."

He currently resides in Idaho with his wife and best friend Rebecca, daughter Nicholle, and a mangy dog named Angel.
