Poltical cartoonist Steve Brodner will give the 2014 Jack Davis Visiting ARtist Lecture March 20.

Editorial cartoonist Steve Brodner will deliver the 2014 Jack Davis Distinguished Artist Lecture on March 20 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 151 of the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Brodner’s lecture, “Showing Work from a Life in Making Statements with Caricature and Journalism,” is open free to the public.

“Using examples of print, Web and video work from the 1980s, we will discuss illustration, how satiric art drives and gets driven by narrative and how to keep your individual voice in the commercial art jungle,” Brodner said. “I look forward to visiting UGA and, of course, paying homage to the great Jack Davis.”

Noted illustrator Jack Davis studied with artist Lamar Dodd at UGA. After graduating, he moved to New York, where he attended the Art Students League before working with William Gaines at EC Comics. Famed for his speed and a tendency to create images with colorful characters, he was one of the founding artists of Mad magazine, supplied covers for Time and TV Guide and designed album art and movie posters.
