1. So this Wednesday, in lieu of a New Book, we’ve got something a little different: the cartoons of Zohar Lazar. Tackling touchy subjects like racial profiling, homelessness, and wealth distribution (à la Occupy movement), Lazar’s cartoons are ruthlessly contemporary, marked by a biting, flippant wit. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s a tremendous cartoonist, with beautiful ink washes and purposeful brush lines inspired by New Yorker legends like Peter Arno.
You can check out Zohar’s great new cartoons on his tumblr (watch out, some are a little racy, some are provocative, but none are gratuitous. That’s what we appreciate: thought-provoking cartoons.) And if YOU have ideas, send them to our OPEN CALL.
