A Cartoon or An Illustration   1 comment

The New Yorker Cover Story (October 31, 2022) by Sergio García Sánchez

First, let me say I love the work of Sergio García Sánchez. I find it very creative, using clean lines and a lot of symbolism. In the October 31, 2022, issue of The New Yorker, Sánchez uses the backdrop of the Grand Central Terminal for Halloween creators passing through the now busy terminal compared to during the pandemic. 

On May 5, 2020, I did a Cartoon du jour posting of the Sánchez cover of Walt Whitman on The New York Times Book Review cover. I first so it as a cartoon, or was it? Was it an illustration? To answer the question, I turned to David Blumenstein, who wrote a posting on Medium, Illustrations vs. Cartoons vs. Comics. What’s the difference, and when do I use each one?

Generally speaking:

Illustrations can tell you what is happening.

Cartoons can tell you how people are feeling.

That works for me, so the October 31 cover is an illustration. Thank you, David.

Comparing Artistic Styles — Norman Baxter & Claudia Galassini   2 comments

Norman Baxter Signed Print of the 1972 Houston Skyline

“Today something different: can you find Ladybug?” The work of Claudia Galassini, which she posts on her blog, “The Sofi’s World

One of the blogs I follow is “The Sofi’s World.” Yesterday she posted the above illustration, which immediately reminded me of the Norman Baxter print we have in our study. For years, Baxter’s illustrations appeared on the cover of some cities Yellow Pages, which was the case of the 1972 Houston Yellow Pages.
