Comic Riffs Asks Editorial Cartoonists How to Draw Serena

Eisner-nominated Michael Cavna does a follow-up piece over at the Washignton Post Comic Riffs section to the Serena Williams editorial cartoon controversary by talking to a few professionals about how they would have handled illustrating an unhappy Serena Williams.

From the piece:

DARRIN BELL (King Features): “It’s not hard to caricature a black person. Just don’t do it like they did it 100 years ago,” says Bell, an RFK Award-winning cartoonist. “If you’re tempted to make their lips look like airbags, or to make their nose take up half their faces, you’re being lazy. Especially when, as in the case of Serena, her lips and her nose aren’t especially large.
