Jane Mattimoe’s wonderful blog, A Case For Pencils begins the new year by spotlighting New Yorker cover artist, John Cuneo. For those who pay extra close attention to Ink Spill, the inclusion of a cover artist here will possibly come as a surprise. For the sake of clarity I define a New Yorker cover artist as someone whose contributions to The New Yorker are solely covers (and sometimes illustrations) and not cartoons. I’ve wanted to include cover artists on the Spill for some time. This is a first or second (or third or fourth?) step to slowly introducing them.
