Now that The New Yorker Festival has entered the history books, we can point out a New Yorker cartoonist moment to watch. With the endearingly funny Andy Borowitz at the helm of “A New Yorker Night with The Moth” Matthew Diffee makes an appearance, telling us about his journey to becoming a New Yorker cartoonist, and running into George Booth along the way.

On the Society of Illustrators October 2013 calender of exhibits: “The Collection of Michael Maslin and Liza Donnelly” — the exhibit runs from October 29 through December 21. (above: a Jack Ziegler drawing that appeared in The New Yorker July 28, 1980)
Here’s the event listing on the Society’s site:
Michael Maslin and Liza Donnelly, long-time contributors to The New Yorker Magazine, are also huge fans of the magazine’s cartoons, past and present. For over thirty years they have been collecting cartoons by New Yorker artists any way they can (gifts, ebay purchases, auctions, and as trades with their contemporaries). This exhibit represents the decades-long obsession with works by such cartoon luminaries from the magazine’s past as James Thurber, Gluyas Williams, and Helen Hokinson and present: Jack Ziegler, Roz Chast, Bob Mankoff, Mick Stevens, Drew Dernavich, Zachary Kanin, Barbara Smaller.
A Lecture and Reception will be held on October 30th to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.
Note: the exhibit, on display on the third floor Hall of Fame Gallery, consists of original work by approximately 40 New Yorker cartoonists, some of whom are tagged below. A full list will eventually appear on Ink Spill.
