The portraits in "Characters: Fifty Portraits of Contemporary Cartoonists" were created by Jess Ruliffson for a one-day exhibition that featured one hundred paintings and drawings of comic artists. The artist selected fifty of those pieces to be published in this collection.
Jess has a knack for capturing a cartoonist's likeness in her small gouache paintings. Those of you within the cartooning community will enjoy recognizing these familiar faces.
