"Life During Wartime"

When my friend the historian Josh Brown began drawing his cartoon "Life During Wartime" in 2003, he conceived it as "a sort of visual political blog" that would comment critically on the war and the home front. To his surprise, after over five years and 270 drawings, he's still at it. Given the course of the war and the conduct of the Bush Administration, "Life During Wartime" hasn't lost any of the outrage that has distinguished the cartoon from the start. The show is on exhibit at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, until February 29.
