Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon…

Johnny DiNapoli on candy corn. Mr. Dinapoli began contributing to The New Yorker in June of 2019.  Visit his website here.

…and Yesterday’s: Mort Gerberg, who began contributing to The New Yorker in 1965(!) on hellish thoughts.  Visit his website here.

In The House

The latest addition to the Spill‘s cartoon library is Bob Eckstein and Michael Shaw’s The Elements Of Stress And The Pursuit Of Happy-ish In This Current Sh*tstorm.*

It’s good to have so much Shaw and so much Eckstein all in one place. Some examples of what you’ll find, cartoon-wise:

Mr. Eckstein began contributing to The New Yorker in 2007; Mr. Shaw in 1999.
