Edward Sorel: tracing is cheating
Illustrator, cartoonist Edward Sorel was profiled by NY1 about his work drawing covers for prestigious magazines like The New Yorker, The Nation, Esquire, Time.
To Sorel, tracing is cheating.
“If you don’t trace, it’s art. If you trace, it’s illustration,” says Sorel. “For me, working direct is fine art, and tracing is commercial art. That’s the difference.”
