Ink Spill recently acquired this wonderful photograph of Roland Baum from a member of the Baum family. Mr. Baum contributed four drawings to The New Yorker: July 13, 1929, August 30, 1930, October 18, 1930 & June 25, 1932. He was born in 1905 and died in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1972. If anyone out there has more information about Mr. Baum, please contact me.
Below is Baum’s New Yorker drawing from the issue of July 13, 1929
Dear Ink Spill Visitors,
Forgive this departure from the norm, as I post my journal entry following a chilly evening at Fenway Park:
Liana Finck, a New Yorker cartoonist since 2013, will be part of a panel discussion at the Museum of Jewish Heritage this coming Wednesday. Information here. Her latest book is A Bintel Brief: Love and Longing in Old New York ( Ecco, 2014).
From the Psychology Today website, April 18, 2014, “A Cartoon Maestro Talks Comedy”— an interview with Drew Dernavich (self portrait to the left).
Link to Mr. Dernavich’s blog here.
Roz Chast will venture up to Cambridge next month, the day after her new book (pictured left) hits book stores. Details here.

Felipe Galindo posted this great photo on FB today. Taken on Tuesday afternoon at Pergolas, a favorite New Yorker cartoonists “look day” restaurant.
