Over the past 40-plus years, cartoonist MK Brown has amassed a resume lots of cartoonists could only dream of, with her work appearing in publications including The New Yorker, The National Lampoon, Mother Jones, The Atlantic Monthly and Playboy.

Her insigtful, incisive, funny work has been collected in Fantagraphics Books' new volume, Stranger Than Life, but if you want to see Brown's art up close and personal--perhaps even with Brown herself--you might consider checking out the new exhibit of her work at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco.

The exhibit opened August 30, but it will really kick off in earnest Saturday, September 6, with a reception that runs from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Brown will be on hand to give a guided tour. Best of all, it's open to the public and free.

So if you're in the San Francisco area and you 1) want to see some great art 2) and the brilliantly funny artist who created it, go check it out.
