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.

    Marcia, this is perfect! Exactly how so many of us feel about the current gossip magazines – who ARE these people? Maybe you should title your cartoon “Peaple,” or have you already used that?

  2. Laurie Levy says:

    This is one of my favorites, Marcia. I fear People has passed us by. Old People would be a fun read these days!

  3. Marian says:

    Perfectly captured, Marcia. My pop culture is in serious disrepair.

  4. Yes Marcia, I get it!, I can’t even tell you who dances with the stars!

  5. And with larger text, please!

    Hilarious! This is me reading People: Don’t know who that is. Don’t know who that is either, etc. etc.
