How the Dog Became the Dog: From Wolves to Our Best Friends
by Mark Derr

“Earth Alert – INX Artists and the Environment” features the work of twenty-one artists from INX, an artist-run syndicate for political illustration founded in 1980 by award-winning editorial artists from the U.S. and abroad. The group has produced a weekly package of powerful images in print and online that has been distributed to hundreds of news sources over the past thirty-two years (The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago Tribune, Newsday and The Washington Post among others.)

Participating artists: Michelle Barnes, David Chelsea, Paul Corio, Susann Ferris-Jones, Vivienne Flesher, Felipe Galindo, David Gothard, Ryan Inzana, Randy Jones, Janusz Kapusta, Thomas Kerr, David Klein, Igor Kopelnitsky, Martin Kozlowski, Peter Kuper, Laird Ogden, Sara Schwartz, Jill Karla Schwarz, Rob Shepperson, Brad Teare and Robert Zimmerman.”

I had no advance notice of this show, and don’t know which piece of mine they’ll be showing, but the INX stable are all worthy illustrators, and readers in the New York area should definitely check it out. And definitely check out the recent collection INX Battle Lines: Three Decades of Political Illustration.
