Making Comics Is Not Really About Making Comics

There’s a reason Lynda Barry is the first comics artist to win a MacArthur “Genius” Award. She loves children. Making Comics is a love letter to every child who ever picked up a crayon and started making marks with unselfconscious intensity. Those children include her college students. Like her readers, some arrive at class with […]

Steve DuQuette – RIP

  Cartoonist Steve DuQuette has passed away. Steven Aldrich (Steve) DuQuette May 13, 1927 – October 26, 2019   Saying Steve was a cartoonist seems a bit of understating. He was a gag/magazine cartoonist, a caricaturist, an editorial cartoonist, a spot illustrator, he did comic features, and on and on. From Mike Lynch: He was […]

Everyone’s A Critic Editor Critques the Industry

Bob Eckstein, cartoon editor of a new book, sits down with cartoonist Michael Maslin. Fittingly, when Michael Maslin sat down and interviewed Bob Eckstein it began with criticism of the current gag cartooning market. There are more cartoonists and cartoons than ever, and quite frankly too many to support in shrinking real estate for the […]

Liza Donnelly Becomes a New Yorker Cartoonist

Liza Donnelly: The year was 1979 and I was lost. Not completely so, but, on balance, I was a bit of a mess. If my life were a pie chart, there would be a slice of about one-eighth that would represent the part of my life that was percolating along fairly well. That part was […]

Asian Babies: Works from Asian New Yorker Artists

In cartoonist lingo, a “baby” is a cartoon. Cartoonists often speak of finding homes for their babies, or places of publication. However, the term “babies” in this exhibition has other meanings as well. They refer to the artists themselves, young in age or their careers. In its nearly 100-year history, the [New Yorker] magazine has […]
