Liza Donnelly announced on social media this morning that she’ll  be live drawing at tonight’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (in her capacity as the CBS News Resident Cartoonist).  This is possibly another first for a cartoonist in a line of firsts for Ms. Donnelly (the others: live-drawing on the Oscars Red Carpet, and more recently, live-drawing at the White House Press Briefing Room).

Here’s a greeting card from 1983 I ran across today while sorting materials in the Ink Spill archives. Good stuff from the great Jack Ziegler! I’ll post some other materials re-discovered throughout the week.

Latest Addition to Ink Spill’s Archives: “Drawings of the Theatre 1927” with Arno, Karasz, Birnbaum, and Covarrubias; More Spills: Bob Eckstein Cracks Wise for The New York Times on Debate Night; Donnelly Live-Tweet Draws Debate for CBS News

Thanks to the generosity of the illustrator Tom Bloom (who is an  indefatigable collector of cartoon-related books & ephemera)  Drawings of the Theatre 1927 has been added to the archives. I’d not heard of or seen this until a few weeks ago. Published just two years after Arno started at The New Yorker it’s an excellent example of how quickly his star was rising in the publishing world. New Yorker aficionados will also recognize some of the company he kept: the great cover artist, Ilonka Karasz (187 covers between 1925 and 1973)  Abe Birnbaum (141 covers and 9 cartoons in a career that lasted from 1929 through 1974) and Miguel Covarrubias (7 cartoons, all published in 1925).

This is a small pamphlet, measuring 4″ x 6″, that opens up like a file folder.   Four attached postcards are slipped into the right side, each postcard featuring one of these four New Yorker artists. . The work of the two non-New Yorker artists, Gil Spear and Samuel Rogers appear on the pamphlet itself — those portraits you see running vertically along the right edge.
