Book Festival puts artists in touch:Nearly every day for at least the past decade, cartoonist Doug Marlette has taken a late morning telephone call from an old friend on the South Carolina coast.It’s a way for the Pulitzer Prize-winner and his pal, best-selling novelist Pat Conroy, to continue their ongoing conversations about life in today’s culture, Marlette said. “It’s kind of like having a witness to things that we both apprehend.”
Matt Groening was recently interviewed by AV Club about some of the projects he’s working on. While still cranking out “Life in Hell,” he’s also working on the upcoming Simpson feature film, and four Futurama DVD feature films. If you’re a fan of Groenings print or television work, this is a good interview.
This year’s John Locher award winner William Warren got some press in his own college newspaper where the sophomore does editorial cartoons. The story also contains the URL to William’s web site where you can see his editorial cartoons.
