From the 80’s through the early 2000’s, I drew editorial cartoons about the New York political scene. Of all the outsized personalities, the one that loomed the largest was Mayor Koch.

His distinctive looks and character were made for cartooning. With his often-surprising statements and actions, he created his own punch lines. Having spent so many hours getting right the curve of his nose and the arch of his eyebrows, it’s hard to believe he’s gone. I’ll miss you Ed.
