The Wednesday Watch: Interviews of Interest with Liana Finck and Peter Kuper

Here are three Liana Finck interviews tied into her just released Passing for Human. The first is with fellow New Yorker colleague, Amy Kurzweil: “Two Cartoonists Sit On A Bench And Talk: An Illustrated Interview”

And… from The Herald Scotland,  there’s “Graphic Content: Liana Finck On Awkwardness, anxiety. and being a New Yorker Cartoonist”

Also… from The Beat: “Interview: Liana Finck is surprised she’s relatable, but she’s getting used to the idea”

And here’s a link to “Kafka Bound” Steven Heller’s Print Magazine interview with MAD and New Yorker cartoonist, Peter Kuper, whose Kafkaesque: Fourteen Stories has just been released.

— my thanks to David Pomerantz and Mike Rhode for alerting me to a few of the above pieces.

A hearty Spill congrats to Peter Kuper, who has won a Liberpress Award. 

From their website: LiberPress was created in Girona in 1999. It was set up with the aim of publicising and promoting what could be called the “culture of solidarity”. Its creation was intended to promote a movement based on solidarity and humanitarian values, which would involve the mass media.
