A Star on the Waddle of Fame
"This drawing is very reflective of my personality, because I have to be in charge of everything," Mort Gerberg says about his 1969 illustration for The New Yorker. "That's why I have this single-minded way of being a freelancer, but it got to be a lot of fun."
Known for his clever mix of wit and social commentary, Mort has been a working cartoonist for more than half a century. "Seal Directs" is one in a series of limited edition prints we're offering (just 10 of each), numbered and signed by him with the same pen he uses to draw. Framed in solid ash wood with a double-thick mat, it's a gift for the person who enjoys art with a wink. Printed and framed in Oregon.
$10 from your purchase goes to the New-York Historical Society, a premier cultural institution dedicated to preserving the richly layered history of New York and the US. If you’re in Manhattan, please visit their exhibit of Mort's work, on display until May 5th.
