March 18, 2020
Tom Toro’s insightful and hilarious cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker over 200 times in the last decade. His work has also also appeared in Paris Review, the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, and American Bystander. Acclaim for his work has come from such legendary humorists as Garry Trudeau, Roz Chast, Barry Blitt and Andy Borowitz.
The New Yorker Cartoon Encyclopedia features a dozen essays written by Toro and his literary wordplay has also been showcased on the New Yorker cartoon editor’s blog and Toro’s very own graphic memoir – Yes The Planet Got Destroyed (Or: How I Learned to Cartoon Through Catastrophe).
Toro graduated cum laude from Yale, where he received the Betts Prize for his literary work while also serving as captain of the national-champion light-weight rowing team and cartoon editor for the Yale Herald. Toro currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
