Drew Friedman's Killer New Book,

Drew Friedman's Killer New Book, "Too Soon"

Over the past 15 years, Drew Friedman has been one of the most popular and prolific illustrators in the magazine world. His caricatures and cartoons have graced the pages and covers of everything from The New Yorker to Entertainment Weekly to the Weekly Standard. And although these days most of his work is in color, he still publishes work in classic black and white as well.

Now Friedman has a brilliant new collection of his magazine work, Too Soon?: Famous/Infamous Faces 1995-2010, published by Fantagraphics Books. It's hardcover, 200+ pages, packed with hundreds of  comics and caricatures and even more laughs. And it's graced with a wonderful introductory essay by Friedman that is a great history of both his illustration career and magazine illustration in general over the past 15 years.

Check out some of our favorite Friedman illos from the book on the next page, and see even more on his Drawger page.
