New Yorker cover artist, Seth (Gregory Gallant) returns to Gil Roth’s Virtual Memories podcast. Hear it here. And while you’re there check out Mr. Roth’s archive of interviews with other cartoonists, including, among others, these New Yorker contributors: Edward Koren, Roz Chast, Sam Gross, Liza Donnelly, R.O. Blechman, Peter Kuper, and John Cuneo.
We have not heard the last of the cartoonist, Buford Tune (mentioned here yesterday). To the left is a snippet of a Tune cover that has surfaced courtesy of Columbia University’s Karen Green. See the entire cover over at Attempted Bloggery.
Here, by way of Danny Shanahan, who donates most generously to the Spill‘s archives, is a box of Le Pen markers with an understated New Yorker connection.
…The latest issue of The New Yorker (it’s a double, covering June 5th & June 12th) contains a debut cartoon by Maddy Dai. Here’s her website.
After a bunch of fun posts about the cartoonist, William Von Riegen, Stephen Nadler at Attempted Bloggery has focused on yet another New Yorker cartoonist whose name might not be familiar to many of us: Buford Tune. Mr. Tune is a member of Ink Spill‘s “One Club” (meaning he had just one cartoon published in The New Yorker in his career, in the issue of October 10, 1936). Mr. Nadler shows us several College Humor drawings by Mr. Tune. Read all about it here.
This upcoming retrospective of Art Young’s work (to be published by Fantagraphics) was mentioned here awhile back, but is worth noting again as the pub date approaches (August 1). And now there’s a cover to show!
Of further interest: the Art Young Gallery in Bethel Connecticut.
Here’s Mr. Young’s entry on the A-Z:
Art Young (above) Born January 14, 1866, Illinois. Died December 29, NYC @ The Hotel Irving. An online biography. 1943. NYer work: 1925 -1933. The Art Young Gallery
