Edward Koren To Become Second Vermont Cartoonist Laureate


Here. I thought this had been announced, but I suppose it was either a) heavily discussed, b) obvious, because Edward Koren is a giant in that state, c) wishful thinking from those of us in comics that suffered under the reign of terror that was James Kochalka's three-year stint as cartoonist laureate for Vermont. I'm of course kidding: I thought James had a lot of fun doing stuff with that title, and it's been fun to watch him use it.

Koren is probably best known for his work in the New Yorker, although I think he's one of those cartoonists that his style distinct from any publishing opportunity is probably his calling card.

Speaking of Kochalka, here's one of those projects, a creative effort done in conjunction with state poet laureate Sydney Lea.
