Richard McGuire Ros Chast (New Yorker)

His comics are less about draw­ing amaz­ing im­ages, but about mak­ing a lan­guage that ca be read. Stick peo­ple are like a type­face. Simple draw­ings also let peo­ple pro­ject them­sleves into the draw­ing. You end up with a com­pli­cated im­age by putting loads of sim­ple el­e­ments to­gether (rather than some vir­tu­osic draw­ing skill). Also this stuff is not just about draw­ing but also com­po­si­tion, page lay­out etc. Very graphic de­sign.
