Garry Trudeau and George Corsillo discuss 35+ years of working together, focusing particularly on a two-year project for Starbucks from 1999-2001. During this time, Trudeau and Corsillo produced a wide variety of Doonesbury-themed products, from posters to mugs to figurines, that were sold across the country in support of local organizations working to boost literacy skills in their communities. Through this project, the team discovered new ways of producing Doonesbury, moving the comic strip into today's iconic style.
In the spirit of the project's original intent, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales, as well as a special poster sale, will go to benefit New Haven Reads. This is the second conversation in a two-part series, "The Art of Collaboration," coinciding with Corsillo's retrospective, "More is More," on view at Kehler Liddell Gallery, July 5 - August 18, 2019.
