Drew Friedman

Illustrator, RAW, Old Jewish Comedians, Heroes of the Comic Books

Drew Friedman's comics and drawings have appeared in RAW, Weirdo, Heavy Metal, National Lampoon, MAD, The New Yorker, and many other publications. His artwork has been collected in five anthologies. His Sideshow Freaks collection appeared in 2011. The New York Times wrote of his three volumes of Old Jewish Comedians: "A festival of drawing virtuosity, Friedman might very well be the Vermeer of the Borscht Belt." The Society of Illustrators will be presenting a show of his Old Jewish Comedians art in 2014. His latest book of portraits is Heroes of the Comic Books from Fantagraphics, with a foreword by Al Jaffee.
