New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast talks about why she's a cartoonist and where she gets ideas in this short video from March 26, 2010, in which she addresses a group of kids. This was part of the Westport Arts Center's "DrawOn!" cartoon workshop. Her cartoons, along with the work of R. Crumb, will be on exhibit in a show titled "Divine Comedy" at the Westport Arts Center in Westport, CT beginning April 1, 2010.

Ms. Chast will give the annual Malloy Lecture in the Arts on April 12, 2010. More information here.
