Known as an artist's artist and revered by 20th century cartoonists ranging from Walt Kelly to Jim Woodring, T.S. Sullivant's work is notoriously difficult to find - which may be why there hasn't been an extensive collection of his drawings and cartoons published until now. T.S. Sullivant (1854-1926) altered the face of comedic art in America. Until Sullivant exaggerated the facial and anatomical features of his cave men (and women), rummy Irishmen, and Biblical characters to the point of caricature, most American cartoonists drew realistically. Sullivant (and Eugene "Zim" Zimmerman) changed that. Sullivant did most of his cartooning for the old Life humor magazine (1883-1936) and Judge. During that period, Sullivant received the accolade of the age: he was employed briefly by William Randolph Hearst to do political cartoons for the New York Journal American. This book marks the first comprehensive collection of this cartooning genius's work: a healthy sampling of his Life cartoons from his debut in the magazine in 1888 to his last cartoon in 1926, published posthumously; with a healthy helping of his 1905-1909 work for Judge.
