During “The RNJ Morning Program” on Tuesday, June 9th, Morning Mike enjoyed a nice chat with Sean Delonas. A native of Mansfield Township, Delonas was the Page Six cartoonist for the New York Post for 23 years. He recently published a book of his cartoon work, Delonas: The Ones They Didn’t Print and Some of the Ones They Did (Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., June 2nd 2015).
Delonas lampooned politicians, sports figures, pop culture, and celebrities and spared neither liberals nor conservatives in his provocative cartoons. From Obama, Clinton, Bush, and Romney, to the Kardashians, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan, and Donald Trump, no one was safe from Delonas’s humorous eye. Delonas has always pushed the limits with his art, which is often politically incorrect and frequently over the top. This collection of over two hundred full-color cartoons, along with a foreword by former New York Post music critic Dan Aquilante, is a must-have book for any New York Post fan or cartoon enthusiast. Delonas said that nearly one-third of the cartoons featured in the book were deemed “too over the top” by his editor, even by Post standards.
Together with his son, Delonas has also written a children’s book. To learn more about Delonas, his work, and his books, visit his website, www.seandelonas.com.
