Greenwich Library presents Greenwich cartoonist Maria Scrivan


Greenwich Library will host syndicated cartoonist and Greenwich native Maria Scrivan Wednesday, Jan. 13, from 7-9 p.m., in the Meeting Room.

Scrivan will share her funniest cartoons from her newspaper comic Half Full in a highly visual and entertaining presentation. She’ll discuss the business side of cartooning as it relates to her own career as a syndicated cartoonist and licensing artist, and the appearance of her work in MAD Magazine and on national television. For patrons interested in the cartooning process, Scrivan will address the age-old question “Where do you get your ideas?”

Maria Scrivan majored in Fine Arts at Clark University and began her career in interactive advertising, graphic and web design before becoming a full-time cartoonist. Half Full is a daily panel about the truths and trials of everyday life, featuring a wide range of topics from technology to modern society with a lot of really silly animals in between. Half Full currently appears daily in newspapers across the country including the Los Angeles Times. Her work has appeared in national newspapers, Mad Magazine, The New Yorker and more.
