A tip of the hat to Mike Lynch for posting this video of Edward Koren as part of a series, “Stuck in Vermont.” In this nearly five and-a-half minute video we see Mr. Koren draw, talk about his work (including an explanation for his characters’ noses), his influences, the business, and The New Yorker, where his work has appeared since 1962.
There are five more members in Ink Spill’s “One Club” — a cadre of cartoonists who contributed just one drawing to The New Yorker during their careers. These five have been added to “The New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z” section of this site. As with almost all the new members added this week, I’ve yet to get around to researching their biographies. There is, however, one very familiar name in today’s group: Ted Key. With today’s additions the One Club membership is now at 85, or thereabouts.
Today’s new members: Jim Kelly, T.E.Kennedy, Ted Key, David L.Kingman,and Clayton Knight
Ink Spill’s “One Club” received seven new members today. Their names have been added to “The New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z” section. Each of these cartoonists contributed just one drawing to The New Yorker in their careers. One Club membership now hovers around 80 members. The latest members:
William Green , Piet Hein, W.E. Heitland, Leo Herschfield, Phil Hustis, E.F. Hynes, and Sewell Johnson
Moving along through the New Yorker’s database alphabetically, I’ve encountered five more cartoonists who contributed just once to the magazine, thus making them instant members of The One Club. With the addition of these five, Ink Spill’s One Club now numbers 73.
The latest club members: Margaret Freeman: February 18, 1928; D.W. Gale: April 23, 1927; Greasley: January 8, 1927; Milton Gross: March 30, 1929; William Heaslip: July 16, 1932
Something new: alongside is the drawing that will appear (greatly reduced) within each Ink Spill One Club member’s listing on The New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z section of this site. With the addition of the six today, there are now 67 members of the One Club (the club is for cartoonists who, in their careers, contributed but one cartoon to The New Yorker). When I began keeping track of these solo contributors, I thought perhaps, at most, there might be a dozen.
The names of six more cartoonists who contributed just one drawing to the magazine came to my attention this morning, thus qualifying them for instant membership. At the moment (as I’ve yet to begin researching their biographies), I’ve zero information on these contributors, other than when their work appeared, just once, in the magazine.
Update: my thanks to Bob Eckstein for supplying information — now added to the A-Z — on Fabry, Drummond, and Enright.
