George Herriman

The only drawing I’ve done this week is on the comic I’m finishing up… so I figured I’d just post this portrait of George Herriman I did a few months back. I read about 8 years of George’s ‘Krazy Kat’ strip last year and highly recommend it to everyone. George was somehow capable of fusing slapstick comedy, surrealism, and a sharp literay wit into a weekly strip that was beautifully drawn to boot. ‘Krazy Kat’ ran from 1913 to the early ’30s and hasn’t lost any of its innovation or relevance in the last 80 years. I mean… it’s no Garfield… but what is I ask you? What is?

    I look at a lot of art that often makes me want to burn all my drawing supplies and mangle my hands.

    Usually that art is not from you.

    Bravo.
