The New Yorker‘s cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff was recently a guest on The Pete Holmes Show. Mr. Holmes, who has contributed cartoons to the magazine, showed Mr. Mankoff a batch of cartoons…including one already bought by The New Yorker. There was a YouTube video of the segment, but sadly, it’s been taken down. However, the entire show, including Mr. Mankoff’s appearance, can be found here on The Pete Holmes Show website.
The above from The New York Times. Congratulations to Ms. Pond!
From the Daily Campus, “UConn to Award over 7000 degrees” — this piece which includes the news that Liza Donnelly, who is being given an honorary degree (congratulations to Ms. Donnelly!), will speak at the Graduate ceremony.
From the fascinating archives of British Pathe, this short piece on Punch from 1962
In today’s New York Times “Home & Garden” section, “Parents Safely in the Closet” — this piece (with slide show) featuring Roz Chast.
Link here to Ms. Chast’s website.
I stumbled across this piece today: “Jill Krementz Covers Saul Steinberg” — it’s chock full of photographs by Krementz of Steinberg including shots of him with Charles Addams, Donald Barthelme, and Woody Allen (there’s also a photo of Charles Addams with Jackie Kennedy Onassis). Other New Yorker contributors pictured include Brendan Gill (wearing a funny straw hat), Ian Frazier, Renata Adler, and S.J. Perelman. Enjoy!
