Elvis "Biographic" & "TrivQuizes" By Cartoonist Steve McGarry

This week’s Elvis blog will be something new. Instead of the thousand-plus words usually found in this space, this week’s entry will be a visual blog. It features the artwork of Steve McGarry, an award winning comic artist whose syndicated features appear in publications internationally.

Born in Manchester, England, in 1953, McGarry quit his job with a mail order company in 1977 to become a full-time freelance artist. His cartooning career took off in the 1980s as his work began appearing in national publications in the U.K. In 1989 he moved his family to the U.S. to work for New York features syndicate United Media.

His “Biographic” is a Sunday feature that chronicles the lives of work of a wide range of pop culture personalities. McGarry’s July 6, 2014, “Biographic” (below) featured Elvis, in recognition of the 60th anniversary of Presley’s recording of “That’s All Right (Mama).”

McGarry also produces a daily feature titled “TrivQuiz.” Five times over the past year and a half, “TrivQuiz” has focused on Elvis:

“TrivQuiz” | June 27, 2014

“TrivQuiz” | February 23, 2014

“TrivQuiz” | December 5, 2013

“TrivQuiz” | July 5, 2013

"TrivQuiz" | January 8, 2013
