I’m a huge fan of men’s magazine cartoonist Bill Wenzel. I love his stylized sketching style and I think his girls faces are stunning. The one liners are really cute! The bellow cartoons are from the 1960’s – 1970’s

Punch line reads: "Remember those wild ties you were going to throw away?"

Charles Addams was an American cartoonist (1912 – 1988). His work was featured in the New Yorker. I’m a big fan of his work including The Addams Family, which is being turned into a Broadway musical.

Al Hirschfeld was an American cartoonist known for his amazing caricature portraits of celebrities.  Hirschfeld also liked to hide the name of his daughter “Nina” in his cartoons.  Below are a small selection of some of my favorites.
