Rimshots by Daerick Gross-1975

In the 1970s, illustrator Daerick Gross did all sorts of creative work in the Cincinnati area. quite often for THE CINCINNATI POST. That newspaper's archives have just gone online. RIMSHOTS was a sports cartoon panel from 1975 which showcased the artist's Hirschfeld-inspired style. A lot of the topical humor here will likely be lost on those who see it today but oh, that beautiful linework! 





  1. I am honored, humbled, and absolutely giddy over this! Thank you, Steve!!

  2. This is the first I've seen or heard of Rimshots - it must have been strictly local, not syndicated. Mr. Gross, this is great work and I actually recognized the caricatures of the 70s sports stars.
