From History News Network, July 13, 2014, “A Life in Cartoons: An Interview with New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff”
Rachel Loube’s short, Every Tuesday Afternoon, A Portrait of New Yorker Cartoonists, will be screened at the upcoming Rochester Jewish Film Festival. The film focuses on several cartoonists, including Emily Flake, Zach Kanin, Drew Dernavich, Sidney Harris (below left) and Mort Gerberg (below right).
In last night’s installment of 60 Minutes, Morley Safer & Company brought us “The Cartoonist” — a look at the weekly selection process for New Yorker cartoons, a glimpse of some of the cartoonists who show up at the magazine’s office every Tuesday, a peek at Editor David Remnick choosing which cartoons to buy, and a min-profile of the magazine’s current cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff.
An impressive number of cartoonists managed on-screen time in the thirteen-and-a-half minute segment including Robert Leighton, Paul Noth, Joe Dator, Bob Eckstein, Marisa Marchetto, Drew Dernavich, Corey Pandolph, Carolita Johnson, Emily Flake, Sam Gross, Mort Gerberg, Farley Katz, Charlie Hankin, Ben Schwartz, David Sipress and Roz Chast. Go to The New Yorker‘s Cartoon Bank site to see work by any or all of these cartoonists.
Also, as you’d expect, a good number of cartoons went flashing by on the screen, including, the one below, only one of two published in The New Yorker by J.S. Cook (both in 1927).
Well this looks like fun. Go see if you’re out/up that way.
