MORE ZANY ZIPCODES FROM ROBERT GUMPERTZ
After years in New York and Paris drawing for Playboy, Paris Match, The New York Times, Penthouse and other publications he settled in Northern California where he is now “Artist in Residence” at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley. He is best known around these parts as simply Gumpertz, the San Francisco Chronicle cartoonist for many years.

Now he occupies his time as a “serious” painter, serious enough to rate a Paris opening this month (we do our best to keep him light). His paintings can be viewed on line at www.gumpertzart.com. This month’s cartoons are from his book “From Fiddletown to Tuba City: America’s Zaniest Towns & Cities, Located & Illustrated”. Unfortunately it is out of print. It shouldn’t be.
