Boston Globe editorial cartoonist Dan Wasserman gave a talk on March 31, 2012. Titled "Out of Line," it was the final program of the month-long One Book One Town series in Sharon, MA. Amy Nachbar reports for the Sharon Advocate.
A few excerpts:
Some of his earliest influences were Garry Trudeau, known for “Doonesbury,” Tom Toles of the Washington Post, Herbert Block of the Chicago Tribune, and Bill Mauldin of Pinstyle.com. But his first influence was his own father who was an amateur artist and exposed Wasserman to drawing as a young boy.
He said he still draws the old fashioned way with pen and a drawing board and then enhances his work on the computer once the drawing is complete.
