A quick look at the magazine’s database and a look-through the Cartoon Bank told me that there have not been a ton of snail drawings over the magazine’s 96 years (not a lot compared to say, cartoons about whales, or puppy dogs). An unofficial tally shows that there have been just a few cartoonists who spent time on snails, with one cartoonist in particular, Sam Gross, achieving snail cartoon immortality with this one
. Two cartoonists who have done a number of snail-centric cartoons are Amy Hwang (see her New Yorker
video “How to Draw Snails”
) and Charles Barsotti. Others who did several or at least one include Victoria Roberts, Jack Ziegler, Shannon Wheeler, Dana Fradon, Ariel Molvig, Mick Stevens, Peter Steiner, Robert Kraus, and Nurit Karlin.
