New Jersey’s New Yorkers…an Ink Spill Map

Here’s a look at Garden State born New Yorker contributors (including its current editor) as well as New Yorker contributors (all cartoonists) not Jersey born, but currently living there. Also included: New Yorker contributors who, though not native-born,  grew up there and/or lived there for a good while. If anyone out there has others I’ve missed (and I’m sure I have) please contact me. (click on the map to enlarge).

Tom Toro’s Mystery Rea Irvin Drawing; More Spills with Pat Byrnes, Bob Mankoff, BEK, Gilded-Age Cartoonists & More

Every so often, someone runs into a cartoon mystery.  This time it’s New Yorker cartoonist, Tom Toro.  Here’s Tom to explain:

 

Calling all cartoon sleuths! There’s a mystery afoot.  I managed to get my sticky paws on an original Rea Irvin drawing but I can’t figure out where it was published or what the caption is.

Does anybody out there know?  It didn’t appear in The New Yorker – if their Complete Cartoons archive is indeed complete.  The only other clues to go on are these stamps that appear on the back of the drawing:

 

Richard McCallister stamp

 

As a reward for the correct answer I’ll offer a signed finish of my own.  Thanks for your help, Ink Spillers!

New Yorker Editor on “Where the Readers Are”; More Spills with Woodman & BEK

David-RFrom The Guardian, this interesting interview with The New Yorker‘s current editor, David Remnick. A former New Yorker editor, Tina Brown, chimes in as well.  [photo: Laura Barisonzi]

note: in the paragraph excerpted below  you’ll notice the mention of “Gadd” cartoons. The word should be “gag”

It would be wrong to see the circulation success as the triumph of seriousness. “The formula of the New Yorker is too complicated to just be called serious … you’re reading a 10,000-word piece on the war in Sudan and speckled within it are Gadd cartoons about talking dogs and desert islands,” he says. “It’s a magical formula.”
