Ward Sutton’s Cartoon Book Reviews

Last night GalleyCat covered Digital Book World‘s 7x20x21 event, a series of presentations by seven industry professionals, each given seven minutes, the chance to choose 20 slides, and 21 seconds to talk about each picture. The night was hosted by and Ami Greko and Guy LeCharles Gonzalez.

All seven presenters focused on publishing optimism, but cartoonist Ward Sutton had a particularly cheery story–explaining how he re-invented his career as a pioneering book reviewing cartoonist. As the video above shows, he found new work following a GalleyCat interview last year. In addition, Sutton explored his newest project, reviewing children’s books with his signature style. Follow this link to read his cartoon reviews.

Stay tuned for more coverage of Digital Book World’s 7x20x21 event, and check The New Sleekness blog for slides and materials from the presentations.
