Profile photo of Marcia Richmond Liss Marcia Richmond Liss
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.

    Well-stated. Speaks for lots of us.

    Thanks for the picture–maybe we need a new category of pictorial contributions, not just the retroflash. This was more like the six-word story.
    You made me wonder about the story behind the picture–why does the little girl miss her mother? Does she now live with grandma? I can guess grandma misses her mom because she was elderly and died, but the little girl’s mom…? Are you one of those people? I echo you and everyone else here–all miss our moms.
