In August 2013, six renowned cartoonists, illustrators, and painters had an art exhibit at Plain Jane’s Restaurant on Greenwood Avenue. Local artists Joe Farris, Jack Medoff, Orlando Busino, Dana Fradon, Frederick Carpenter and John Smallwood-Garcia received the nickname “The Artists of Plain Jane’s” after meeting for weekly lunch at the restaurant for over a decade. Their work has appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, the New Yorker, the New York Times, Playboy and the National Lampoon, among others. Hear the artists speak about their careers, inspiration, camaraderie, and whatever else comes to mind.
