Paul Laud, political cartoonist and author will present “Behind the Ink,” his lively and entertaining cartoon artwork accompanied by biting limericks and commentary from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm Thursday, Feb 21, at the Madison Community House at 25 Cook Ave.  His program will cover current events, including politics, business, radio and TV personalities, environment and sports.

Laud is a nationally publicized cartoonist whose editorial illustrations have appeared in newspapers for over 30 years.  His "Laudable Inkworks" is a large body of work built around illustrated limericks that convey complex facets and subtleties of the underlying story, leaving the audience with both a new perspective and a laugh.  According to Laud, the audience particularly enjoys the section of cartoons titled “Cartoons That Got Me in Trouble.”

The program, the second of three this year in the Thursday Morning Club’s lunch and lecture series, “Wise Wonderful Women,” is open to the public.  The registration fee of $35 includes lunch and the lecture.  Checks can be mailed to and made payable to “TMC, Wise Wonderful Women,” P.O. Box 345, Madison, NJ 07940.  Cancelled checks will serve as a receipt; tickets will not be mailed.  For information contact Rose Mary Dinnhaupt, the club’s Ways and Means chairwoman, at rmdinnhaupt@verizon.net, or (973) 377-8508.

Laud’s cartoon artwork has been strongly influenced by a professional career in venture capital and private equity. His cartoons are published in the Recorder Newspapers in New Jersey and have appeared in trade journals, USA Today, The New York Times, and currently online on newsday.com and morristowngreen.com. 

Laud holds an undergraduate degree in economics from Princeton University and an MBA from Dartmouth’s Amos Tuck School of Business Administration.  He produced a daily comic strip for The Princetonian during college earning him the title of “Class Cartoonist Laureate.”  At a recent reunion, he received a lifetime achievement award for thirty years of cartoons, illustrations and class logos.

His book, “Laughing Out Laud: Tripping Over Party Lines,” published in Dec 2010, will soon be followed by “Laughing Out Laud, Volume II, Tempestas Americana.”

Originally from Long Island, Paul and his wife Katie currently live in Morristown with their three children. 

The Thursday Morning Club owns and operates the Madison Community House, a Nursery School, and a Before and After School Child Care program.  Organized in 1896, the Club is a member of both the New Jersey State and General Federation of Women’s Clubs.  The club provides programs and services to support the community, and its Community House has provided a home for various sports, recreation and civic groups.  For information about the Thursday Morning Club or membership, contact the Community House at 973-377-0244 or visit www.TMCMCH.org.
