Drew Friedman Interview

Above: Woody Allen as drawn by Drew Friedman.

TCJ has an terrific interview with illustrator Drew Friedman by Jay Ruttenberg.

Didn’t Woody Allen complain about your drawing of him?

In the Observer. He actually wrote a piece for the Observer about his love for the Knicks. They assigned it to me, so I did a close up of Woody dressed up like an old sports reporter, with liver spots and freckles. When he saw it he was livid. His sister called the Observer and said, “Woody is really angry. He’s never going to work for you again.” I felt bad about it. I thought Woody would enjoy it. But people just don’t have a sense of humor when it comes to themselves.
