The Pen-Ultimate Arnold Roth Exhibit

Here's some more wisdom for ya: Don't miss the art show The Pen-Ultimate Arnold Roth: 60 Years (and Counting) As a Freelance, currently on display at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York City!

Over 45 original Arnold Roth cartoons are hanging now, highlighting his work from publications such as Sports Illustrated, Esquire, The New Yorker, Playboy, Punch, Southampton Review and many more.

For Roth, every drawing represents an artistic challenge as well as a narrative one. “I try to give myself little problems,” he said. “Brubeck, years ago, was on a symposium and somebody asked him, ‘Would you describe what playing jazz is?’ And he said, ‘It’s getting yourself into and out of trouble.’ “I thought that was a good way to put it. If you’re not doing that, you’re really hacking it, doing the same thing over and over. I always want to push it a little.”

The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is now housed in the Society of Illustrators [ 128 East 63rd St in Manhattan ]. This free exhibit can be found on the second floor of the Society’s historic headquarters through March 2nd, 2013.
