The Trudeau Chronicles

  Next to the door of my father’s studio stood a non-functioning lacquered mahogany grandfather clock, which faced down a hall that ran the length of our 10th-floor apartment. If the studio door was closed I would sometimes open the clock’s cabinet and set its brass pendulum swinging to produce a resonant tick-tock that softened […]

Jack Davis as Sports Cartoonist

    If you happened to grow up in America in the 1960s, 70s or 80s, you’ve no doubt seen the work of artist Jack Davis. Best known for his work on MAD Magazine, Davis’ art permeated American pop culture in so many ways, it’s arguable that he was at one point the country’s most […]

The Late, Great Dwane Powell

  I have gotten way past the point of thinking anyone owes me anything. I’ve done OK with what I’ve been given and won’t bitch because I didn’t get a cherry on my free ice cream Sundae. But I can get pissed off on someone else’s behalf. The Pulitzer Prize is a subjective award; it’s […]

He is probably best known to the general public (of a certain age) for the cartooning, and that’s what I’ll feature in this post. I was “of a certain age” for the Rowland magazine cartoons. Once upon a […]

Though Peanuts centered on children, its messages and themes explored were universal and eminently relatable to adults as well as kids. Above strip dated July 1965 sold for $39,210 in October […]

Dogs, Cartoons, and George Booth – A Visit

  By 1965, the cartoonist was making a name for himself along the freelance circuit, with work in the Saturday Evening Post, The American Legion, Look and Collier’s. To hear him tell, it was a rootless existence. Several years later he’d sell his first cartoon to The New Yorker in 1969, the publication he’d come to learn […]
