One More Drawing Added to the Society of Illustrators Upcoming New Yorker Cartoon Exhibit



It gives me great pleasure to note that an original  New Yorker cartoon by Anatol Kovarsky has just been added to the upcoming exhibit at The Society of Illustrators. Mr. Kovarsky, who was profiled this past summer on Ink Spill as well as on the New Yorker’s website, contributed cartoons and covers  to The New Yorker from 1947 through 1969.

With the addition of Mr. Kovarsky’s drawing, the exhibit now includes the work of 46 New Yorker cartoonists.

The newest member of Ink Spill‘s “One Club” is Neil Sessa, whose one drawing in The New Yorker appeared May 14, 1938. One Club membership is limited to those who contributed but one drawing to the magazine in their careers.  Mr. Sessa is the 128th member admitted. I’ve been unable to find anything on Mr. Sessa other than he was an animator who worked in the Fleishman Studios. Any further information would be appreciated.
