Charles Addams, New York Cartoonist

imageBetween the celebration of Ronald Searle's 90th birthday and a translation being made widely available of Yoshiharu Tsuge's hilarious interview given in support of what is as of right now his last work, it's been a great week for the reconsideration of formidable cartoonists. So it seems fitting to see a substantial article about a new exhibition of Charles Addams' work, rare for being organized around Addams as a Gotham luminary as opposed to the shadow patriarch of his Addams Family. Also, apparently the exhibit includes Irvin Penn's totally bitchin' portrait of New York cartoonists, 1947, something at which I'm always happy to stare.
