Clear Line Rules at New Yorker

I had bought the oct. 22 issue of the New Yorker for John Updike’s review of the recent Charles Schultz biography, but lo and behold, there were also illustrations by two of my favorite ligne claire cartoonists to be savoured ! Joost Swarte made the illustration above for an article on a new trend in condensing books, and Floc’h made a portrait of historian and cultural critic Jacques Barzun (with a big fat clin d’oeil to Citizen Kane, no less).

    Hey, Thanks for the illustration by Floc’h. I had missed this one. If you like the work of that French artist, feel free to visit my blog which I dedicate to his art. http://lhommedanslafoule.blogspot.com/
