Peter Kuper Direct Draws Little Donald’s Sneeze; A Case For Pencils Spotlights Hartley Lin’s Tools Of The Trade; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon…And Yesterday’s; Seth’s City; Today’s Daily Shouts Cartoonist; More Spills: Chast, Blitt

Calling his recent New Yorker piece, Little Donald’s Sneeze (After Winsor McCay’s ‘Little Sammy Sneeze’) a “Photoshop fest” Peter Kuper decided to do a sort of take 2 — without Photoshop.  Edward Sorel has referred to working this way as direct drawing.

In an email, Mr. Kuper told the Spill:

“I had to check if my McCay drawing chops were intact so I drew this up. My admiration for McCay went up another 1000% as I noted every detail he included, every costume, a full band and on and on. Unbelievable.”
