Out this May from Drawn & Quarterly, Co-Mix: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps by Art Spiegelman.
From Paul Karasik’s blog, February 14, 2013, “Rules to Vivere By” — a “not newsy” account of Karasik’s recent visit to the 2013 Angouleme comics festival. Lots of photos, including the one above from a paper museum.
From Bob Mankoff’s blog @ newyorker.com, February 7, 2013, “Kvetch A Sketch” — Roz Chast, Mick Stevens, Liza Donnelly (whose drawing appears above) and Matt Diffee give the Etch A Sketch app a whirl.
From Broadwayworld.com, February 6, 2013, “The Rubin Museum Explores Illusion in 2013 BRAINWAVE Series, Opening Today” — scroll down for info concerning a March 3 appearance by Zachary Kanin (whose drawing appears above), Paul Noth and David Sipress

The New Yorker’s Daily Cartoonist now features Danny Shanahan. Also of interest, Shanahan-wise, is his new Facebook page “Danny Shanahan — New Yorker Cartoonist.” It’s only a few days old but is already nicely overflowing with cartoons and photographs.
Victoria Roberts new book, After the Fall has received two newyorker.com notices: What We’re Reading and New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff’s blog, The Cartoon Bureau

“A Little Cartoonist Eye Candy for New Year’s Eve”
— photographs of cartoonist’s work spaces. A fun post.
From The University of Connecticut’s Art & History site,
“Two Exhibitions will feature work by Professor Emeritus Gus Mazzocca and His Students”
I was honored to be selected as one of Professor Mazzocca’s students exhibiting work.
Danny Shanahan recently announced through Facebook that he’s next in line for The New Yorker’s Daily Cartoon online feature. David Sipress has been supplying work since the feature began (sorry, no link. Just go to newyorker.com. Danny’s work will begin appearing any day now). And speaking of Danny: now you can find him on Facebook at Danny Shanahan — New Yorker Cartoonist. You’ll find photographs of cartoonists, unpublished Shanahan cartoons and more.
And finally: A note of thanks to all of you who dropped by this year. Ink Spill attracted close to a million-and-a-half hits in 2012 — an encouraging number for a site that elects to cover such a tiny sliver (i.e., New Yorker cartoonists) of a very large field (all cartoonists).
2013 should be chock full of fun posts as The New Yorker’s 88th anniversary arrives in February and the 109th anniversary of Peter Arno’s birth in just about a week. Ink Spill will increase its interviews this coming year, including a talk this summer with Peter Steiner on the occasion of the 16th anniversary of the publication of his famous New Yorker cartoon, “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.”
Happy New Year to all!
