In 1982, Marcia Liss began drawing cartoons and continued over the centuries to chronicle the life of Everywoman, as perceived by a suspenders-and tie-wearing cartoon character named, coincidentally, Marcia. Deserving of a 2nd and 3rd look by 2 major syndicates, but not making the final cut at either, a few of the single panels were published by the popular magazine called...uh...hmmm...well, anyway, “Today’s Chicago Woman” named the cartoonist as one of 90 woman to watch in the ‘90’s. Nobody quite knew what they were watching for, but there you have it. When not drawing cartoons, Marcia worked as Development Director for the ACLU of Illinois, raised 2 children (who are now married with kids of their own), and stayed married. She is a very serious person who worried about climate control, gun control and other control issues until she realized she had no control and concentrated instead on getting first row center seats to Liza Minnelli concerts. She currently lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband where she draws cartoons and laughs at her own jokes.

Characterizations: right on!


  1. Suzy says:

    Marcia, thanks for another great cartoon! When I first read your title, I thought it said Global Warming, with an M, but actually Global Warning with an N is much better.

  2. Laurie Levy says:

    Marcia, your picture is worth 1,000 words. They never should have called climate change global warming, although that’s what is happening. If I hear one more idiot say that the weather is very cold…

  3. Marcia, your cartoons are fabulous regardless of rejection and I love your bio. I mean, what good is staying alone in your room? Come to the whole earth cabaret and we all go out like Elsie.
