Happy 92nd, Henry Martin!; Tom Toro Talks Trump

Ink Spill wishes the wonderful Henry Martin a very Happy Birthday! He celebrated his 92nd a few days ago.

Mr. Martin’s first New Yorker drawing was published August 15, 1964 —  he went on to contribute nearly 700 more. In his honor here’s a 2014 interview brought to this site’s attention by David Pomerantz. It was conducted by Mr. Martin’s daughter Ann, the author of the enormously popular Baby-Sitter’s Club series.  You can read it here.
