This weekend I picked up a well weathered copy of The Pocket Book of Cartoons at the Newberry Library book fair. What a fantastic book! After reading the caption on the back, I had to publicly apologize as it clearly touts Peter Arno as "the undoubted king of cartoonists." Other notables are Charles Addams, "dabbler in the macabre" and James Thurber, "proponent of merry madness." So there you have it. I should learn just to keep my mouth shut.
The always entertaining Holmes is posting the work of another of the artists found in the book, Whitney Darrow, Jr., who is just incredible. Check it out.
Just for fun, here's a James Thurber cartoon for my pal Steven. Merry madness, indeed.
