I see New Yorker cartoonist George Booth is featured at the Society of Illustrators in New York City. I saw this great feature on CBS Sunday Morning today about Mr. Booth, this is it above. I’ll be in NY next week, so I hope to stop by and enjoy his work.
Last time, actually, the only time I was at the Society of Illustrators, was this past July, that’s when I went to see the Spider-man art exhibit with my cousin Michael.
When I was in New York last month, my cousin Beth handed me a book she bought for me, it was “Going into Town” by cartoonist Roz Chast. She said, “I thought you might like this, I don’t know if you are familiar with Roz Chast’s work but it was about cartooning and New York, so I assumed you would like it.”
I was excited. I told her that I had found one of my new favorite museums that way, the Museum of the City of New York. In all these years, I had never been, but I saw that last July (2016) there was an exhibit of Roz Chast’s work who I was very familiar with, so I went up to see that. I now love that museum and that neighborhood, so every time I’m in New York, I check it out.
