We are excited to welcome Evanston artist Patrick Shiplett as the next to be featured in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. A cartoonist whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, NY Times, and Washington Post, Shiplett’s exhibit features nearly three dozen cartoons he presented to the New Yorker’s editorial staff before they explained “there was no room for a cartoonist [his] age in their lineup.” Titled Too Old for the New Yorker, Shiplett’s cartoon collection is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library where you can catch it through August 31st along with selected writing from his blog. You can find more of his cartoons and writing by visiting his website, and you can learn more about his work at a reception on Thursday, August 4 at 5 pm. Also, make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in the month for a featured interview with the artist himself. Stay tuned.
