Go, Read: One-Sentence Per Graph Profile Of Gerald Scarfe
I hope you'll forgive me the indulging of posting a link to this profile of Gerald Scarfe. I mean, it's a pretty good piece, and Scarfe is always interesting. The reason I'm posting it here, though, is based on a couple of selfish things. One is that I love newspaper profiles where basically every paragraph is a single sentence -- don't ask me why. I think it has something to do with the fact that this was a signifier of tabloid, fun newspapers I only ever read when my family was on vacation. My father's newspaper punished with the lengthy graphs. The other reason I post Scarfe pieces is in the hope that someday Gary Groth will get to interview him: I think it's one of three or four missing interviews in Groth's long and distinguished career.
