In 1982, Marcia Liss began drawing cartoons and continued over the centuries to chronicle the life of Everywoman, as perceived by a suspender-and-tie wearing cartoon character named, coincidentally, Marcia. Deserving of a 2nd and 3rd look by two major syndicates, but not making the final cut at either, Marcia was published by a popular magazine called…uh…hmmm…well, anyway, “Today’s Chicago Woman” named the cartoonist as one of 90 women to watch in the ‘90’s. Nobody quite knew what they were watching for, but there you have it.
When not drawing cartoons, Marcia worked as Director of Development for the ACLU of Illinois, raised two children (who are now grown with kids of their own), and stayed married. She is a very serious person who worried about climate control, gun control and other control issues until she realized she had no control and concentrated instead on getting first row center seats to Liza Minnelli concerts.
She currently lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband, where she draws cartoons and laughs at her own jokes. Perhaps you will, too!
