Roz Chast, American Cartoonist

Roz Chast has loved to draw cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. She attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in Painting because it seemed more artistic. However, soon after graduating, she reverted to type and began drawing cartoons once again.

Roz Chast published her first cartoon in The New Yorker in 1978; the spread in this week’s issue marks her one thousand two hundred and sixty-seventh. Her cartoons have also been published in many other magazines besides The New Yorker, including Scientific American, the Harvard Business Review, Redbook, and Mother Jones. Her most recent book is a comprehensive compilation of her favorite cartoons called Theories of Everything: Selected, Collected, and Health-Inspected Cartoons of Roz Chast, 1978-2006. She also illustrated The Alphabet from A to Y, with Bonus Letter, Z, the best-selling children's book by Steve Martin.

On a blisteringly cold, recent winter morning, the production team of The New Yorker rode the train to Connecticut and stepped inside her colorful and cartoon-filled home to talk about her parrots, her obsessions, her canned-food collection, and how she creates her drawings.

For more information about Roz Chast and her cartoons, please visit her website and Wikipedia.
