Self-described “sit-down comic” Leigh Rubin drew his way into the cartooning business by launching a greeting card company in the 1970s and reached the masses through his syndicated mainstay Rubes — which factors into 400-plus media outlets, not to mention calendars, books and coffee mugs. Reminiscent of Gary Larson’s The Far Side, Rubin’s offbeat, single-panel comics often endow animals with human characteristics as a means to satirize everyday life. Central Library welcomes the native New Yorker for a talk about “the creative and technical aspects of cartooning.” Free, 7-8pm Thu, Central Library Auditorium, 600 Soledad, (210) 207-2500, mysapl.org.
