Ron Hill has been publishing editorial cartoons with commentary on mostly local and regional issues in the award-winning weeklies The Chagrin Valley Times and The Solon Times since 1999, and The Geauga Times Courier and West Life since around 2010. He does occasionally comment on Ohio and national issues with a local slant (since all politics is local). In 2008 one of his cartoons was awarded the Best of Ohio for a Non-Daily Newspaper by the Cleveland Press Club.
He has also illustrated 15 volumes in the Armchair Theologian Series, published by Westminster John Knox Press, which have been been translated into German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese and Japanese.
Ron is a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and learned to draw caricatures from the one and only John Johns. He continues to draw at parties and events, estimating since 1982 he has drawn a quarter-million faces. Since 2016 he has been a managing partner with Act 3, a media company in Cleveland, and he has published three collections of his political cartoons: Edutoons (Act 3, 2016), The Usual Suspects (Act 3, 2019), and BB BluesBird and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year (Act3, 2021), all available from www.Act3creative.com. He lives in a suburb of his hometown, Cleveland, Ohio, with his wife, Margie. Together, they have three adult children, 2 daughters-in-law and three granddaughters.
