Art Shirley is Back — With Rebel Cartoon for Boise State

082514_BoiseStateBroncosArt Shirley is a cartoonist and contributor. We’re happy to have his first cartoon (above) of the season marking the opener against Boise State.

Art never disappoints and we hope you enjoy this example of Art’s great imagination.

Art Shirley graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1984 with a BA in Art.

While at Ole Miss, Art drew the daily comic strip Ernie, Skip & Joe which ran for a little over three years in the Daily Mississippian.

Art is currently the Creative Director for Quest Group, an advertising and marketing firm in West Point, Mississippi, where he and his wife, Becky, make their home. Art and Becky have two sons; Will, a junior at Ole Miss, and Drew, a freshman at Mississippi State.

Art has continued to do some cartooning “on the side” in the nearly thirty years since he left Ole Miss, contributing to several local papers, websites and trade magazines. He has just self-published a graphic novel, enjoyed some internet success with a cartoon about the Weather Channel’s alleged “Land Mass” gaffe and is particularly excited to be contributing cartoons for

To introduce some of our new readers to Art’s witty work, we thought we’d share a few of his best cartoons from last year.
