Some cartoonists need to look in the mirror a bit more often

by  in Comic News Comment

You ever notice how cartoonists, even the most photorealistic ones, never draw themselves how they actually look? Either their self-portraits are utterly unflattering, or they go too far in the other direction and make themselves unrealistically attractive. That’s why this (admittedly Webcomics-heavy) rundown of various cartoonists and how they portray themselves in their work is such a boon. Now you know who to pester the next time you’re strolling down the Artists’ Alley of your favorite convention. (FYI: First Second has some artist self-portraits up as well, though only one photo. Bummer.)
