Cliff Vancura has been involved in daily journalism for nearly 30 years. Before coming to the Herald he worked for multiple newspapers including USA Today, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the Austin American-Statesman. He’s produced informational graphics, illustrations and designed presentations for stories of both local and national significance. As a freelance illustrator and designer, his work has also appeared in magazines including Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Field and Stream and The Nation. Outside the newsroom you’ll likely find him wandering the landscape looking for a place to set up his easel to paint, or in town sampling some of the fine, local effervescent nectar of the Gods.
