Tom Bachtell, whose wonderful spot drawings are featured weekly in the New Yorker‘s Talk of The Town section is the subject of Jane Mattimoe’s Case For Pencils this week. Check it out here.
As long as the subject of New Yorker Spot artists has come up (with Mr. Bachtell’s work) here’s a little something from the Spill‘s archives: Suzanne Suba was one of the very few New Yorker spot artists to have her work collected in book form.
