THE NATIONAL CARTOONIST

National Cartoonist coverNCSF prez Steve McGarry just announced the launch of The National Cartoonist:

 

"Published by the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, it is a free magazine celebrating the best in cartooning, past and present, with extensive interviews, in-depth features and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the world of cartooning and comics, as well as beautiful reproductions of rare and, in many cases, previously unseen original art from some of our greatest luminaries! We hope it is a publication that will be enjoyed by all cartooning fans, from the casual reader to the seasoned professional."

 

McGarry goes on to say free copies will be given out at the San Diego Comic-Con, at the NCS booth -- #1307. And you can read the 64-page magazine online here and subscribe. It's free!

COMICS SHERPA: EDITOR'S PICKS

This recurring LAUGH TRACKS feature highlights individual Sherpa strips and panels that for one reason or another caught the fancy of the aide de sherpa. It could be anythng; the drawing, the writing, the humor, the coloring, that they tried something interesting, or that it's a new step for that particular creator.

 

We hope this quirky sampler will alert you to features you might not yet have noticed amid Sherpa's abundant, ever-changing, and eclectic mix, and that it gives Sherpa creators a modicum of helpful feedback.

LYNDA BARRY: WHAT IS AN IMAGE?

 

I'm a fan of Lynda Barry, and was glad to recently come upon this short talk:

 

:

 

 

Here are a few of her rich collage pages:

 

 

What Are Thoughts?

 

Time and Place 2

 

TO FOLLOW A WANDERING MIND

 

 

Those are from her Eisner-winning 2008 book What It Is, and make me think of the work of the late great Kenneth Patchen.

 

This is her long-running alt-syndicated comic strip ERNIE POOK'S COMEEK:

 

50 Teeth and 13 Nipples

 

Things I Can See From Here

 

And here's an interview with Susan Kirtley, author of Lynda Barry: Girlhood Through the Looking Glass, who notes that Barry calls what she does "image wrangling."
