In 2005, Stantis began 'Prickly City', a politically oriented comic-strip about a girl and her coyote. He left 'The Buckets' at this time, which is now continued solely by Stantis' former assistant Greg Cravens. United Feature Syndicate distributes 'Prickly City' since 2009. In that same year, Stantis was hired as editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune. Previously, Stantis had been a cartoonist with The Birmingham News, The Commercial Appeal, The Arizona Republic and the Grand Rapids Press. Apart from working on his strips and cartoons, Scott Stantis is a writer, animator, father and collector of political memorabilia.
