Sparky Schulz Centennial Celebration – July Notes

Cartoonews – Editoon Edition

So much to do, there’s plenty on the farm… Editorial cartoonists become accustomed to being revered and reviled — frequently by the same people, and often at the same time. Asked if that love-hate relationship makes it hard to do the job, Bruce Plante replied: “Eh. It might make it a little bit harder. But […]
