The Tilley Watch; Attempted Bloggery on Buford Tune; An Art Young Retrospective

…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
