Drew Friedman and a few other cartoonists explain their caricatures of the VP candidates over at the NY Times.
In anticipation of Halloween, Playboy presents a gallery of classic cartoons by Gahan Wilson, along with a handful of interview features.
They also spill the beans on Fantagraphics' upcoming collection of every cartoon Wilson ever published in Playboy, a 3-volume hardcover slipcased set due next October, in time for Halloween 2009! Yow! (Having been a fan of Wilson's work since I was a little kid reading Matthew Looney books, I personally can't wait for this set!)

Jeremy Eaton is selling two dozen gouache drawings (including those seen above) in a one-night only studio show/sale, Sept. 13, 6-9 p.m. The same work will be available online at the same time (go to Comic Book Collective), but those in attendance at the opening get a special "locals only" price.
His studio is at 521 NW 43rd St., Seattle, WA 98107 (north side storefront of the big blue building at the junction of 6th Ave. NW & 43rd, just across from Hale's Brewery, on Leary Ave.).
Seattlites best know Eaton as the illustrator of The Stranger's I Love Television column, as well as the editorial cartoonist for the Beacon Hill News. Comic fans know him best for a slew of Fantagraphics releases over the last decade and a half.
