The Wavy Rule, a Daily Comic by Paul Morris: Tilley Meets His Maker

As you might expect, since I just spent a number of months collecting material for a piece about Rea Irvin for PRINT, I am in love with all things Irvin. Paul—whom I thank in the piece because he’s shared numerous invaluable resources and insights with me about Irvin’s aesthetic—is as keen on the early years’ co-genius as I am. About this cartoon, he writes: “Inspired by the photograph of Irvin in Lee Lorenz’s wonderful The Art of The New Yorker. A must read.” I agree. Sweet Knopf: Please bring it back into print!
