Roxie Munro has posted on Facebook that The Society of Illustrators will host a memorial service for the late great Ed Fisher who passed away this past April. Mr. Fisher contributed over 700 cartoons to The New Yorker between 1951 and 2000. The memorial will be at the Society, 128 East 63rd St, NYC, this coming Tuesday (May 21) at 5.
With The Society of Illustrators as co-presenters, MoCCA’s Arts Festival returns for 2013 with its traditional mix of special guests and events. Among those in the festival whose work has appeared in The New Yorker are Jules Feiffer, Peter Kuper, the illustrator Arnold Roth and cover artist Peter de Seve. The event is this coming Saturday and Sunday (April 6th & 7th at the 69th Regiment Armory at 68 Lexington Ave., NYC).
