Oh, the irony of an artisanal factory! In this cartoon, Pat Byrnes masterfully pokes fun at the use of the word "artisan" as a marketing ploy.
Original hand-drawn cartoon by Pat Byrnes published in the New Yorker on September 6, 2010. Graphite pencil on 8" x 10" Strathmore Series 500 single ply drawing paper. Strathmore embossing visible in lower right corner. New Yorker production sticker on rear. Mint condition.
True artisanal goods can’t be mass-produced, are in short supply and come with a story behind them...just like this original work of art.
