My Hall of Fame (8): Ricor


Interview with Doaa Eladl (take 2)

PRI's The World has posted a slideshow of female Egyptian editorial cartoonist Doaa Eladl.
 Egyptian Doaa Eladl is a woman in what is still a man’s world: political cartooning. She’s one of just a handful of female political cartoonists in the Middle East.  And her cartoons often comment on that fact.  Eladl publishes her work in an Arabic language newspaper but here’s a chance to hear her — through an interpreter — and see a selection of her cartoons.

The Someday Funnies (a sneak preview)

I just got back from Montreal where I visited Michel Choquette who allowed me to take a few photos of the layout of "The Someday Funnies", a collection of comic strips, drawn in the early seventies, that will be published next November by Abrams in New York.
One of my early works will be published alongside those of Sergio Aragones, Gahan Wilson, R.O. Blechman, Don Martin and Ralph Steadman no less!
