Andrea Arroyo’s Worldwide Artists Project
New Yorker cover artist, Andrea Arroyo tells Ink Spill this project was “launched hours after election.

A number of New Yorker artists are represented including Tom Toro, Barry Blitt, Bob Staake, Peter Kuper, Felipe Galindo (feggo), Rich Sparks, and R. Sikoryak. Go here for all the info, and a list of all the artists.
Christopher Weyant on Newspapers and Editorial Cartoons
From Editor & Publisher, “Digital Publishing: Why Newspapers Need to Invest More in Political Cartoons” — long-time New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant has been studying just that. Read it here.
…Visitors to The New Yorker‘s Daily Cartoon will probably note that it has been revamped. The now defunct version featured one of the magazine’s cartoonists work for a number of weeks (sometimes months). This new version abandons the one cartoonist model and presents a variety of cartoonists work within the week.
…Here’s another favorite photo from Jack Ziegler’s memorial last Saturday at the Society of Illustrators. We see Roz Chast working on some tiny paper shirt constructions (yes, tiny shirt constructions), with Edward Koren looking on. The Spill will post scans of the shirts in a few days.
