And Now . . . for
Something (Completely) Different
In 1984 I was living on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, teaching at Winchester High School (north of Boston) and bartending on Boylston Street on the weekends. During that year I ran across cartoons by a kind of off the-wall artist --- Ken Brown --- whose work reminded of Kliban's. It was irreverent and replete with satiric religious commentary --- generally pretty damn amusing stuff. I actually have a signed copy of a collection (pictured above) Notes from the Nervous Breakdown Lane.
According to Wikipedia: Ken Brown (born March 12, 1944, Dayton, Ohio) is an American filmmaker, photographer, cartoonist, and designer. He grew up in Amherst, Massachusetts, relocated to Cambridge, Massachusetts, and currently lives in New York City. He has directed dozens of animations, experimental films and video documentaries over the last four decades.
Here are today's cartoons, then, from Ken Brown.
Stay home. Stay safe. Wash your hands.
