In August 2017, a cartoon that he drew in response to Hurricane Harvey was criticized for being insensitive to victims of the hurricane. The cartoon depicted a man in a Confederate-flag shirt being winched from a house with a "Secede" sign, as one of the rescuers points out that they had been sent by the government. A tweet from Politico containing the cartoon was later deleted.


Wuerker was the winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning. He was a finalist for the award in 2009 and 2010. He has also been awarded the 2010 Herblock Prize (presented at the Library of Congress) and the 2010 Berryman Award by the National Press Foundation.
