When Vitch went to NY in 1931 he started drawing caricatures of clients at a famous Manhattan Speakeasy. These were the Depression years in America but Vitch not only managed to earn good money (a fortune at the time) but he also caught the attention of a journalist who upon seeing his work called him “genius”.

More on that in the upcoming Vitch book!

In the meantime, please visit our expanding gallery page on our website, where you can see Vitch’s work and the stars that he perfectly captured in a few strokes of black lines.
