A great play on the classic hook limbed pirate (and one of our personal favorites) in this original, hand-drawn cartoon by Matt Diffee. This piece was published in the New Yorker on October 10, 2004.
Matt received the 2013 Silver Reuben Award for “best single panel cartoonist of the year” from the National Cartoonists Society and is Chairman of the L.A. Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. In addition to the New Yorker, Matt's work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post and on CNN, PBS, ABC, CBS and NPR’s Fresh Air, and All Things Considered.
Pencil on 7.5" x 11" smooth Bristol board. (Image measures approximately 5.75" x 6"). New Yorker production sticker on the reverse side. Excellent condition.
Matt works almost entirely in pencil, so his pieces are sold with a protective sheet of tracing paper to prevent smudging. We recommend that it not be removed until framing.
