Black Diamonds Are Forever
"This is my homage to Charles Addams, the legendary cartoonist of The New Yorker," Mort Gerberg says about his 2001 illustration for the same magazine. "Charlie's had these double ski tracks but they were being formed by one skier—that was his particularly lugubrious humor. I looked at that and thought, 'What would be the contemporary?'"
Known for his clever mix of wit and social commentary, Mort has been a working cartoonist since the '60s. "Smarty Snowboarders" 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.
