From The Comics Journal, July 11, 2012, Michael Dean reports on the sudden closing, and future of New York’s Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA): “MoCCA Aims for Improved Location: Closure Not Permanent”
From time to time, interesting objets d’cartoon are brought to my attention. An Ink Spill visitor recently passed along these photos of four glasses bearing Otto Soglow’s famous Little King. Anyone interested in purchasing them may contact Darcey Bournay at email@example.com

From Liza Donnelly’s Forbes column, “News Junkie,” July 6th, 2012, “Garry Trudeau on the ‘Invisible War’ Within The Military”
Long time New Yorker cartoonist, Danny Shanahan, now has a website (currently in progress)…go visit!
The New York Times “6th Floor” has reported on its victory over The New Yorker this past week (“There’s No Crying in Media-League Softball,” June 28, 2012). Ink Spill asked The New Yorker’s softball co-coach (and cartoonist) Drew “Woodcut” Dernavich for his thoughts on the game:
When The New Yorker plays softball, we are always up against a variety of opponents: our own low turnout, our own high turnout, our talent, the weather, and the expectation that every play will be one of John Updike-like poignance. The New York Times Magazine was just one more enemy that we faced on Tuesday. If you are counting runs scored, they beat us in that category. If you count the newness of the uniforms, the amount of Big League Chew consumed, the quality of the *ahem* coaching, and our excellent post-game representation at the bar, we can more than hold our own. We’re working on the rest. As they say: it’s not a sprint, it’s a road trip with a lot of beer and Big League Chew.
