I am studying up on comics lately. One of the great cartoonists I've stumbled onto is Bruce Eric Kaplan (or BEK as he is known). He has submitted over 300 comics to the New Yorker and I am just over-whelmed by his sense of humor and his drawing style. Really simple and his people are so funny-looking to me. And somehow, it still screams New Yorker, too.
I also found out, via Wikipedia, that he was a television writer for one of my all-time favorite shows, Six Feet Under. so, huzzah!
You can see some of his work at the New Yorker Store and read an interview about him and his 2011 book EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY.
UPDATE: Here's another pretty good interview.
