Jeet Heer has a short look at the Underappreciated and Essential Francoise Mouly, primarily her influence as an editor from Raw to the New Yorker which is about the most badass resume a person could ever hope for.

Just learned that there's an art gallery operating in my neighborhood of Ballard here in Seattle. The Wonderful Union has a show of locals Don and Ryan Clark's work opening on Saturday, the 12th.

Or maybe you'd prefer Chicago's Steak Mtn. show. Apparently Threadless now has a gallery...

Jules Feiffer Debuts Explainers at the Strand on May 15

You are invited to the world premiere of Jules Feiffer's long-awaited collection, Explainers, featuring the complete first decade of his legendary and groundbreaking comic strip, Sick, Sick, Sick (and later redubbed Feiffer), from the Village Voice. Feiffer will read from the book and answer questions before signing copies of the deluxe hardcover collection.

Explainers by Jules Feiffer

"Samuel Johnson said he hoped God would think he had made good of his God-given talents. Jules Feiffer need have no dread of such an audit... What has made his services so welcome for so many years now is his possession, in addition to high intelligence, of something no hypocrite or egomaniac could claim, which is a human sense of humor." - Kurt Vonnegut

Humbug behind the scenes
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsmetaHumbug 7 Apr 2008 2:13 PM

Humbug original art

We have a very cool new feature up, suggested by Gary Groth and written by production ace Paul Baresh, tracing the process of restoration of a page from the late-1950s humor magazine Humbug (created and edited, post-MAD, by Harvey Kurtzman) for our forthcoming collection (due in late summer). Check it out!

Sketchbook #9
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Gabrielle Bellart 7 Apr 2008 8:46 AM

Gabrielle Bell drew this beautiful picture of my three cats (from top to bottom) Jaybird, Martini and Sancho. 

When I decided to share these sketchbook pictures, I photographed all of them and uploaded them into a private Flickr set in a random order and have just been uploading them one a day in the order of the Flickr set. It's very weird that this picture came up for today, because yesterday we had to say goodbye to Martini, who passed away at age 14.  R.I.P., Martini Baton, 1994-2008.
