#RIP George Booth (1928-2022)
Who is the cartoonist George Booth?
- Today I heard the terrible news that George Booth (1928-2022) has died.
- You know the moment…how it feels
- …an icon who has brought so much joy
- into your life is no more.
- I felt the same way when
- the actor Alan Rickman…actress Diana Rigg,
- writer Hilary Mantel and writer Terry Pratchett died
- Finally after all these years of laughing at Booth’s cat’s and dogs
- George Booth….will be missed.
- He was a The New Yorker magazine cartoonist.
- Over time, his cartoons have become an iconic feature of the magazine.
- In a doodler’s style, they feature everymen beset by
- modern complexity, goofballs perplexing their
- …spouses, cats, and very often a fat dog.
- Here is one of my favourite cartoons of his world…filled with
- crazed dogs, a profusion of cats and hen-pecking wives!
“…The pussies like surprises.”
