recent issue of the New Yorker I think (can't find link, can't find issue at home or even in our local library which apparently no longer holds a few weeks of back issues what the hell is up with that?) features a two page cartoon by a contemporary Greek/American cartoonist (name slips my mind) outlining the history of his father's career as a gag writing cartoonist and how it became harder and harder as the magazines declined.

Good stuff, I call upon others to track it down as a companion piece to this.

Just outstanding - the stuff about his process, showing repeated versions of a piece are just fascinating and wonderful!

god Sorel is awesome. Studying his work and trying to borrow his mega-scribbly methods for a little while really loosened my penwork up.
