The Arno drawing, once given to Richard Avedon by Tina Brown, was recently auctioned at Sotheby’s. It appeared in The New Yorker, December 26, 1942. (An Arno war time cover adorned the magazine that week as well).
New Yorker cartoonists turned out in time honored fashion to celebrate the holidays last night. Corey Pandolph gets a heap of credit for procuring a corner of the Upper East Side Hi Life Restaurant where nearly two dozen contributors came together in good cheer. Among those attending, including Mr. Pandolph: Joe Dator, David Borchardt, Liam Walsh (who brought and shared a tray of cookies), Andy Friedman, Liza Donnelly, Robert Leighton, Bob Esmay, Emily Flake, Drew Dernavich, Farley Katz, John O’Brien, Avi Steinberg (celebrating his first appearance in the magazine), Barbara Smaller, Felipe Galindo, David Sipress, Bob Eckstein, Eric Lewis, Ward Sutton, Christopher Weyant, Ben Schwartz, and Karen Sneider.
Liza Donnelly has posted on her blog a handful of photographs taken at the event.
