The New Yorker Magazine is as famous for its dry and satirical cartoons as it is for its journalism, and since 1982 many of those cartoons have come from the singular mind of Liza Donnelly. The New York-based cartoonist is renowned for injecting comedic and sometimes cutting social commentary into her simple yet visceral drawings; many of which – like “Good girl or slut” – become viral sensations when they’re published online. Through her books, speeches, and role as a Cultural Envoy for the US State Department, she’s been pivotal in maintaining the relevance and importance of cartoons in contemporary culture.
