Kansas City Cartoonist Charles Barsotti Dies
Kansas City-based cartoonist Charles Barsotti died Monday, according to The Kansas City Star.
Barsotti, 80, was a regular contributor to The New Yorker, The Atlantic and USA Today. He published more than 1,300 cartoons during his career.
"Barsotti mined most any topic using a variety of comic setups," writes the Star's Edward M. Eveld. "They included the clipped conversations of kings and aristocrats and a seated therapist remarking to a patient on the couch."
He even doodled a few panels for KCUR.
Barsotti, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor last year, died at home with his family.
