Cartooning Interviews and Events

Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice: Ivan Brunetti This May, Bob Andelman, also known as Mr. Media, has interviewed two of YUP’s experts on graphic fiction and cartoons: Brian Walker on two of his recent books, including Doonesbury and the Art of G.B. Trudeau and Ivan Brunetti for Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice.

And Chicago-based fans of comics and graphic novels are in for a treat: Ivan Brunetti will appear at the 27th annual Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, which takes place on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5, 2011. The Lit Fest is a free, two-day literary extravaganza featuring more than 200 authors, 100 literary programs and 160 booksellers.   Doonesbury and the Art of G.B. Trudeau: Brian Walker

On Sunday, June 5, from 2 pm – 2:45 pm, Brunetti will discuss his new book (and the art of cartooning in general) with two rising young cartoonists who are also based in Chicago: Chris “Elio” Eliopoulos and Onsmith. All three will be available to sign their books afterwards.

And for those outside of Chicago in need of Brunetti’s teaching, once again here is the trailer for Cartooning. Why? Because it is simply one of the coolest things ever.


  1. I like Ivan Brunetti’s “Misery Loves Comedy.” I would have loved to attend his class. I’ll probably but this book instead as I am an aspiring cartoonist.
    Here’s the link to my webcomics:
    However I tend to think that some things cannot be taught. You have it, or not.

  2. buy his book*

  3. i think most things can be taught but that will only take you so far i think you still have to have sum flair and talent

  4. Nice. I would love to learn how to cartoon. And what better than to learn from Ivan Brunetti himself.
