New Yorker Artist: George Booth 1926–2022
A great cartoonist and lovely human being
The wonderful New Yorker artist George Booth died this week at age 96. He was a friend, and one of the kindest people I know — aside from being a very gifted artist. George began at The New Yorker Magazine in 1969. Since then, the world has enjoyed his covers, cartoons and collections and we collectively fell in love with his pen line, his sense of humor and his spirit.
