At Home with Roz Chast from NewYorker on Vimeo.

In this charming video, prolific New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast gives a tour of her colorful home in Connecticut—and introduces us to her nervous parrots—as we see some of her relevant works splashed across the screen in witty juxtaposition. Since 1978, she's had more than one thousand two hundred appear in the magazine, some of them now iconic images and even covers.

Chast discusses her love of Ukrainian Easter Eggs, curious canned food labels and her late parents' effect on her work as the camera jumps from one idiosyncratic design element to another.
