Exhibit & Discussion Of Interest: John Kascht; A Bonus Daily Cartoon By John Cuneo; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; Liza Donnelly Visits The Umbrella Cover Museum

Exhibit & Discussion of Interest: John Kascht

A traveling exhibit of John Kascht‘s work opens at The Cartoon Art Museum (that’s out in San Francisco) September 22nd, before heading east to The Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum and Library.  Mr. Kascht made his New Yorker debut in the issue of November 9, 1992 with a portrait of Jay Leno.

Mr. Kascht told the Spill that:
“The exhibition includes 75 original drawings and watercolors, a big wall of pencil sketches, step-by-step process displays, and my never-before-exhibited life drawings of Katharine Hepburn which are, as far as I know, the last images ever made of her.”

If you’re out west and can make the September opening you’ll be able to catch Mr. Kascht in conversation with Pete Docter, the Chief Creative Officer of Pixar. Info here and on the poster below. And here’s a link to info on the exhibit catalog.

A Playboy Cartoon

Not too very long ago — fifteen years? — if you asked a cartoonist to name the top two places to take one’s work, the answer would be The New Yorker, and then Playboy. In recent times, what with the roller-coastering of cartoon-usage at Playboy, the idea of a second best place is anyone’s call. “Will the Millenials Save Playboy?”  from today’s New York Times mentions there is a cartoon in the Summer issue of Playboy. Is there more than one?
