George Booth – 1926-2022

We all have mentors inspire us from afar.  For me as a playwright, it was Lanford Wilson.  But if I could draw, it would have been George Booth. I never met him, but I knew his world: from the scraggly dogs and cats, the band with Mrs. Rittenhouse doing the Baby June split, and the overall mysteries of everyday life.  So I took the advice in some fashion from this cartoon that graced The New Yorker.
