Jerry Dowling Published Book on Pete Rose
When you think about Cincinnati cartoonists, most people think of recently retired Jim Borgman. But for those of us who have a Jerry Dowling original hanging in our house or eat at Arthurs on occassion, Jerry also is a Cincinnati cartooning icon.
For years he worked at the Cincinnati Enquirer and has focused mainly on single panel sports cartoons. In the past several years, his work can still be seen weekly in the local indie paper City Beat. He has pulled together his years of doing Pete Rose cartoons – from the Big Red Machine to the Big Ugly Banishment – and put them in a book with baseball writer Hal McCoy called Drawing Pete. You can read an article about it from co-author Hal McCoy by following this link.
I know you can get it at Amazon (click picture) or at local Cincinnati book retailers.
