Kurt Ankeny: Mining the Mind’s Eye

Kurt Ankeny talks about the reasoning and philosophy behind why he finds drawing from imagination and memory such a strong approach to cartooning, and how this creates deeper truths via non-photographic image making.

Kurt Ankeny is a cartoonist and painter whose work has appeared at the Society of Illustrators, at the Cape Ann Museum, and in Comics Workbook. He lives with his wife and son in Salem, Massachusetts.
