Glenn Foden, Editorial Cartoonist Dies

Glenn Foden
His last favorite Facebook picture.
Dr. Bill Smith, Editor: It is with great regret to have learned of the death of Glenn Foden who has shared his work on the ARRA News Service and was a Facebook friend.

Glenn died on Sunday.
Mt. Airy, Maryland - Glenn Keith Foden, 60, died unexpectedly on Sunday, March 20, 2016, at Marlborough Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Teresa (Franklin) Foden.

Glenn was born in Malden on February 2, 1956. He was the son of Donald R. Foden of Chelmsford and the late Leola (Brown) Foden. In addition to his wife and father, Glenn is survived by his two daughters, Hannah and Emily Foden of Mt. Airy, Maryland...
In his last couple years he has also contributed cartoons via the Heritage Foundation's The Daily Signal. yesterday the released the following:

Daily Signal editorial cartoonist Glenn Foden, who delighted in puncturing the pretenses and policy missteps of politicians, died Sunday after suffering a brain aneurysm.
Foden, a resident of Mount Airy, Md., had a gift for communicating conservative principles through his artwork. No matter the topic, he could deliver a humorous take on the most complex policy issues.

Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Daily Signal, who worked with Foden to settle on the topic of his weekly cartoon, recalled:Every Wednesday morning I’d get an email from Glenn saying something like, ‘The ink is simmering, the coffee pot is on, what Washington debacle should we tackle this week?’ And so would begin our weekly back and forth of cartoon concepts to match up with a commentary on The Daily Signal/i>.

Sometimes the first draft was the best; sometimes it took us three, four, or five revisions. It made no difference to Glenn—he was always committed to finding the right image and right angle to make the point and to make his audience chuckle.
Foden’s last tweet was typical:
Foden’s relationship with The Heritage Foundation dates to 2013, when he began producing cartoons for our Morning Bell daily e-newsletter as well as “whiteboard” videos such as this one on the Falkland Islands.

Patrick Frank, a former Heritage employee who films and edits online videos for The Daily Signal and other clients, recalled:Glenn would leave around 5 a.m. to make a 1.5-hour or so trek from his place in Maryland to my place in Alexandria, where we’d spend all day filming a whiteboard video. … From storyboarding through filming, Glenn and I worked incredibly well together. [He] made sure each little detail of every scene was thoughtfully considered and delightfully executed.

We had a lot of time to kill working on these, and we’d have a blast talking about family, self-employment, ’70s rock bands, kind of anything but politics, to be honest. He epitomized the phrase “If you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life” and was truly an inspiration to me. I’m heartbroken to think that we won’t have another filming day together.
Amy Payne, who edited commentary for The Daily Signal’s predecessor, The Foundry policy blog, was instrumental in his becoming a regular here.

“Glenn was the type of person you usually only dream about working with,” Payne said, adding:He was fun, easygoing, and had no ego involved. He was happy to bring others’ ideas to life. All I had to do was say, ‘What if we did something like this…,’ and he would whip up the cartoon version. No matter the time of day, he would come through for you—with a smile.The Massachusetts native became a weekly contributor to The Daily Signal, Heritage’s multimedia news organization, when it launched in June 2014.

Foden, a political cartoonist for more than 25 years, once said his first and best vote was for Ronald Reagan. . . . [Read More]
