Boss Tweed

Boss Tweed may have been the most powerful man in the city, but he was still tormented by Thomas Nast’s biting parodies of him as a cartoon. Decades later, Jules Feiffer took on Presidents from Eisenhower to Clinton in the pages of the Village Voice. Parsons faculty member Bill Kartalopoulos will lead a panel exploring the historical – and ongoing – interaction between political cartoons, New York City, and the public.Panel members will include: graphic novelist and illustratorEric Drooker, whose work regularly appears on the cover of The New Yorker; cartoonist and SVA faculty member Tom Hart, whose Hutch Owen has appeared in two book collections and a daily comic strip in the Metro; New York Times contributor and cartoonist Tim Kreider, whose cartoon, The Pain – When Will It End?, has been collected in two books; and World War 3 Illustrated co-founder, graphic novelist, and “Spy vs. Spy” artist Peter Kuper, whose “Eye of the Beholder” was the first comic strip to regularly appear in The New York Times.

Political cartooning is probably then only way I’ll get a political fix, that and twitter.
