Cartoonist Roz Chast Takes on The Most Dangerous Adversary: Visiting Relatives
Roz Chast’s print A Visit From the Relatives, 2013

Here’s what you need to know to love the New Yorker staff cartoonist Roz Chast’s hilarious print A Visit From the Relatives:

 

1. Brooklyn’s own Rosalind “Roz” Chast published her first cartoon in the New Yorker in 1978 at the tender age of 24. Since then, she’s gone on to become a celebrated fixture of the magazine, producing over 800 cartoons and cover illustrations over the past four decades.

 

2. In addition to her regular duties at the magazine, Chast also keeps busy with a bevy of other projects, including the many books she’s written or illustrated. Most notable among them may be her 2014 graphic memoir Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, a New York Times #1 Best Seller and the winner of the first-ever Kirkus Prize in Nonfiction. She’s also exhibited her drawings in a variety of institutions, including the Museum of the City of New York and the Norman Rockwell Museum.

 

3. In this limited-edition print, we see Chast’s signature style and subjects—interior scenes, bright colors, and a wry take on the small struggles that fill our daily lives—transformed into a bona-fide work of art. Now longtime fans of the New Yorker’s famous cartoons can bring home a bit of the humor in a piece visiting relatives (among others) are sure to love.
