SEE: The Pulitzer cartoon portfolio of newly minted winner STEVE SACK

“I’ve always been so proud of working for this newspaper,” Steve Sack said Monday, as quoted in the pages of his longtime home, the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “For something like this to happen, I feel like it’s for all of us.”

Sack was reacting to winning the Pulitzer Prize for the first time, after 32 years and 7,800 editorial cartoons for the Minnesota paper.

“It was a very surreal day,” Sack told Comic Riffs as his whirlwind Monday wound to a close, “and my main thought is, I could use a good stiff drink.”

Certainly, the newsroom champagne had flowed earlier in the day. Sack’s win — which comes with a $10,000 prize — marks the fourth straight year that Columbia honored a first-time winner in Editorial Cartooning, following Prizes to Politico’s Matt Wuerker (2012), the Denver Post’s Mike Keefe (2011) and the self-syndicated Mark Fiore (2010).

Monday’s Pulitzer finalists were prior winner Clay Bennett of the Chattanooga Times Free Press and first-time finalist Jeff Darcy of the Plain Dealer in Cleveland.

The Pulitzer judges praised Sack’s “diverse collection of cartoons, using an original style and clever ideas to drive home his unmistakable point of view.”

Congratutions to all the honorees.

To see Sack’s entire diverse collection, here is his winning portfolio:
