Vip: The Mad World of Virgil Partch by Jonathan Barli – Photoset Preview

“[Virgil Partch] was among a half-dozen or so cartoonists who had an absolutely distinctive style … He was in a class by himself.” — Chuck Jones

“I wanted to become a professional cartoonist because of Virgil Partch. Cartoons were all sort of the same [at the time], and suddenly this man came along, drawing both eyes on one side of the face and pointed noses and lines that continued in a roll … he was sensational! Virgil Partch was a big discovery for me.” — Sergio Aragonés

“Virgil Partch was one of the most influential cartoonists of his day. And through natural continuum, still is. He was one of those individuals who devise new approaches and realizations for all of us. His graphic sense and style were highly individual, as was his humor and the design of his pictures … the height of comedic art. Vip was the V.I.P.!” — Arnold Roth
