Shaenon Garrity on Cartoonist Anne Cleveland

Shaenon Garrity writes about fellow Vassar alum Anne Cleveland and her legacy at Vassar.

Ms Cleveland is a cartoonist whose work IT'S BETTER WITH YOUR SHOES OFF was featured here at this blog in November.

Shaenon provides more information on a cartoonist whose work we'd like to see more of. Her article is heavy on photos, like the one on the left with her at the Alumnae House pub, which "is entirely decorated with murals and paintings of college life by Anne Cleveland."

A big tip of the hat to Brian Moore for this!




Some scans from the Mike Lynch Cartoons blog of Anne Cleveland's book IT'S BETTER WITH YOUR SHOES OFF:

I am lucky to have found all of Cleveland's books, and have seen the murals at Vassar. They are wonderful! Anytime you find info on Cleveland or Jean Anderson, please post! Thanks

Anne Cleveland is my grandmother(my sister just told me about this post and may have left a comment too)--I had no idea anyone had recently read her books or that she did murals at Vassar! I will tell her she has an internet following! She also did beautiful oil paintings.
