My Life & Work (Cartoonist Ivan Brunetti)
Join cartoonist, illustrator, teacher, and occasional New Yorker cover artist Ivan Brunetti for a lecture that promises to be equal parts personal history, mid-career retrospective, mid-life crisis, studio tour, and stream-of-consciousness monologue. Brunetti peels away the layers of his own onion, examining the foibles of his haphazard artistic development, dissecting his working process, and tracing the roots of his tastes and predilections.
Ivan Brunetti lives and works in Chicago as a teacher, editor, illustrator, and cartoonist, usually in that order. He is the author of the disreputable collections Misery Loves Comedy and Ho! and the comic book series Schizo. On the more respectable front, he is also the author of Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice as well as the editor of both volumes of An Anthology of of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons, and True Stories and Aesthetics: A Memoir. His drawings occasionally appear in the New Yorker, among other publications.
