Did you know I wanted to be an editorial cartoonist at one point in my life? Well, now that you know you can only imagine that I jumped at the chance to chat with cartoonist, Victoria Roberts. Victoria is a contract artist for The New Yorker Magazine. When I researched cartooning (back in the day) I was quite fascinated with the process and the type of personality that can do this type of work everyday. I really got a glimpse of her unique perspective in this interview. Victoria cracked me up when she compared getting rejected to acting, “You’re out of work a lot!” She also made me laugh when she talks about the future of editors! Hilarious! I loved hearing what she has done to reignite her passion for her art.
Victoria is a multitalented artist-writer. She recently authored and illustrated the critically acclaimed novel, After the Fall, this delicious tale is a love letter to family, creativity, and New York.
