Dead Cartoonist Working
Here's an object from the past that I was reminded of just yesterday, the cover to Seattle's alternative newsweekly The Stranger, from February, 2008, heralding the opening of my one-man show “If I Died Right Now”, an ironic posthumous presentation of my artistic career. The image, meant to evoke old publicity photos of famous twentieth century cartoonists, was art directed by Dale Yarger and photographed by Brandon Harmon. For a much more complete look at this event, featuring many artifacts, including testimonials from fellow cartoonists like Rick Altergott, James Sturm, Pat Moriarity and Jim Blanchard, as well as writer Chelsea Cain and musican John Ramberg, click here.
