Rob White's a funny guy. His wry sense of humor finds places to play in his cartoons and his paintings. In his world, tractors perform airborne acrobatics, potatoes hover above fields and the foibles of living on the East End of Long Island are captured in ink.
EXTRA INFO: These cartoons were created for and published by The Suffolk Times newspaper. The publication is based on the North Fork of Long Island. White was their cartoonist-in-residence from 1982 to 2002. Along the way, White racked up several first place prizes from the NY Press Association and self-published the book "What Say We Sell the Farm and Move to the Country."
White's paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows on the East End. He describes his art as having a "whimsical surrealism."
White's early professional art career included a collaboration with singer-songwriter Harry Chapin (1942-1981) on the book "Looking...Seeing." Chapin provided the poetry and White illustrated the book.
