JOANNA NEBORSKY is a maker of jittery ink drawings, retro-fried collage, and clumsy animations; someone who wasn't, remarkably, Joanna Neborsky, said her work suggests a blend of "Shel Silverstein, Yellow Submarine, and Cy Twombly." (She would gently add Monty Python.) Her first book, an illustrated series of gruesome turn-of-the-century French news items translated by Luc Sante, was published by Mark Batty Publisher in September 2010. In March 2011, the Italian arts press Edizioni Corraini published her illustrated edition of Daniil Kharms’s Tumbling Old Women, a Russian short story from 1936. She drew one hundred literary caricatures -- from Shakespeare to Colette -- for Tom Nissley's literary almanac A Reader's Book of Days, published by Norton in November 2013. In fall 2016, Penguin will publish her illustrated version of the Proust Questionnaire. Her clients include HarperCollins, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, the New York Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, and W Magazine. In January 2012, she was profiled by the New York Times T Magazine Online. The illustrator doffs her beret to the Sauls (Steinberg & Bass), the Bens (Shahn & Katchor), and people with other names. She lives in Los Angeles.
