Mick Stevens

Cooler than the other side of the pillow, jazzman and cartoonist extraordinaire Mick Stevens sat down with Max and Simon for a look back on a legendary career. His inaugural cartoon in New Yorker was an instant classic in 1979. “Life Without Mozart” continues to resonate almost 4 decades later with a new generation of cartoon aficionados. Now a denizen of Miami, Mick is still playing the tenor sax and putting out his weekly batch of single panel inspirations. Check back next week for Part One: The Mick Stevens Interview.
