Miami life portrayed in ‘Drawing a Crowd’

Miami Student editorial cartoonist Charlie Zimkus has published a collection of his work in "Drawing A Crowd: An Editorial Cartoonist’s Look at Miami University and Beyond." Divided into categories like "for whom the Beta Bells toll" and "uptown scene," the cartoons chronicle stories great and small, from parking tickets to Greek life to the water tower.

Cincinnati Enquirer editorial cartoonist and 1991 Pulitzer Prize winner Jim Borgman in a "cartoonist’s forward" describes Zimkus’ drawings as "full of curiosity, wisdom, provocation, perspective and fun."

"Drawing a Crowd" was written, designed and published by Zimkus, with support and permission from The Miami Student.

Zimkus has won regional and national awards, including the 1999 first-place award for best editorial cartoon from the College Media Advisors. In 1998 he was one of nine national runners-up to the Charles M. Schulz Award for college cartoonists.

Zimkus, who will graduate in December with degrees in painting and journalism, will sign copies of his book from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at Follett’s Miami Co-Op Bookstore.
The book is available for $9.95 at the Co-Op and the Shriver Center Bookstore.
