He’s amazing. I’ll second what Ann’s comment! …second Ann’s comment! He is a one of a kind. He has influenced legions of admirers over the years… and none have matched his mastery. He’s brilliant, one of the great cartoonists. Everybody doing editorial cartoons today owes him a debt. I could watch Oliphant draw all day. What skill! Another cartoonist I could watch draw all day would be Walt Kelly, especially when he fit four complete characters in an action shot in ONE panel. To Ann Telnaes: not many can draw as well as you do, either. Also thoroughly enjoy the animation and enjoy watching a video of it on the Post site. Thank you; I really appreciate your kinds words. I have been feeling the need to get back to those invaluable life drawing classes again, especially after seeing Oliphant’s drawings. Kal’s right, though- Oliphant is a master. No one comes close. “No one draws like Oliphant” There’s some French guy named Honore Daumier who kinda did. Sculpted like Oliphant too. I had seen this footage before on another program. But never get tired of it. Didn’t see an editor around. Does he keep them in a closet in his studio? There’s two levels of cartooning….Oliphant is one and the other is everybody else.
