From Modern Toss to The Far Side, to breakfast newspaper staples Matt and Banx, there’s nowt better than seeing a universal truth represented with a funny one-liner cartoon. We don’t often put this kind of thing on It’s Nice That, which seems odd considering what a wonderful and spectacularly niche skill it is. Paul Noth is up there with the greats, and his witty gags grace the pages of the New Yorker and the Wall Street Journal on the regular.
As well as condensing huge news stories into tiny, beautifully illustrated jokes, Paul has guest-written for shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Late Late Show, something not many artists would get the chance to do. May this rare and joyous art form live on for much more time to come.
