It’s unfortunately too late to attend the gallery show but I’m proud to be included in Characters: Portraits of Contemporary Cartoonists, featuring a hundred paintings of just that by New York cartoonist Jess Ruliffson. My portrait was also done a couple days after the book of the show was printed. Characters has the first fifty of the featured artists and is available for six dollars through Robyn Chapman’s Paper Rocket Comics. It would be great to have all 100 cartoonists together in one room, each holding up their portrait, but I don’t expect something like that to happen soon unless you write your Congressman. It’s their job to listen.
