The Nib Looks at New Yorker cartoons in 2040
Here’s an amusing piece from The Nib, August 8, 2017, “New Yorker 2040” — too bad the author didn’t try imagining various cartoonists styles 23 years from now instead of just using one vaguely 1950s – early 1960s similar style…or is that what’s in store? Bonus: the zillionth take-off on Steinberg’s iconic New Yorker cover. ________________________________________________________________________________
Cartoon Companion’s Frank Cotham Interview, Part 2
Cartoon Companion has posted the second half of its interview with veteran New Yorker cartoonist, Frank Cotham (shown to the left wearing the pointed party hat; this is a cropped screen grab from the Arnold Newman group photo that appeared in the very first Cartoon Issue of The New Yorker, Dec. 15, 1997). To the left of him is Dean Vietor, to the right of Mr. Cotham is Mick Stevens in his customary top hat. That’s Lee Lorenz, lower left, joyously tossing confetti in the air, and Mike Twohy, lower right, tentatively tossing confetti).
