If you haven’t gotten around to thumbing through a copy of Peter Arno: The Mad Mad World of The New Yorker’s Greatest Cartoonist, the New Yorker‘s website has posted an excerpt along with two slideshows: one of Arno’s Whoops Sisters and a second spanning Arno’s (non-Whoops Sisters) work for the magazine . Read it here.

Attempted Bloggery takes a closer look at two similar but different cartoons by two very different cartoonists, Peter Arno and Otto Soglow. Read it here.
And speaking of Peter Arno, here’s an audio link to an Arno interview conducted this morning by Joe Donahue on WAMC, a Northeast Public Radio station.

More from the Department of Self-promotion:
Was in my home state of New Jersey this past Thursday for an Arno event at Books & Greetings, an indie bookstore in Northvale, hard by the New York State border. Was greeted by the sight of the poster pictured here, the size of which, I’m sure, would’ve pleased Arno himself. Thanks to those who attended and to Kenny and company for such a nice reception!
One further note:
I’ll be the guest of Joe Donahue on Public Radio Station WAMC’s “Roundtable” on Monday, May 2 at 11:30 am. We, of course, will be discussing Peter Arno.
