I thought I’d take some time out to highlight Etta Hulme, a cartoonist who should get more attention here. Click on the image at the right to watch an interview with Emma. She’s the most widely read woman cartoonist in America, with hundreds of newspapers running her syndicated cartoons. Etta is a charming, talented, grandmotherly character and her cartoons are just as warm and charming – in sharp contrast to the harsh, younger cartoonists.
Thanks to Dr. Elaine K. Miller, a college professor who specializes in the study of editorial cartoons and who produced the documentary on Etta that the clip is taken from. I hope to see it on TV! E-mail Dr. Miller. See Etta’s cartoon archive. See the Etta interview clip.
