Pen & Angst & Watercolor: drawings by Barry Blitt

The Minor Memorial Library Community Studio is honored to welcome back Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Barry Blitt.

Since 1992, Barry Blitt has contributed illustrations and more than one hundred covers to The New Yorker, including “Deluged”, which won the 2006 Cover of the Year award, given by the American Society of Magazine Editors, and “The Politics of Fear”, a finalist for the same award in 2009. His drawings have also appeared in Vanity Fair, Time, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic and The New York Times. He has been honored with exhibitions and awards from the Society of Illustrators, Print, and American Illustration and is a member of the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame. Barry Blitt won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning, “for his watercolor style and gentle caricatures of the personalities and policies that come from the Trump White House”.
