Blogs Of Interest

Two of The Spill‘s favorite New Yorker centric places to visit. 

A New Yorker State Of Mind: Reading Every Issue Of The New Yorker

This is the go-to site for a New Yorker time tunnel experience.  Always fascinating.  As you see by Ilonka Karasz’s cover above, the latest post examines the issue of March 8, 1930. 

 

And…

 

Attempted Bloggery

Attempted Bloggery‘s  latest cartoonist fest is all about original work by the late great George Price.  Always fun seeing off the beaten path material from the New Yorker’s artists.  See it here.

The Monday Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of March 25, 2019; Even More George Price; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Lila Ash

The Cover:

As mentioned here last week, the Brexit-inspired cover, by Mark Ulriksen, was early-released.  Read about it here.

The Cartoonists:

Suerynn Lee‘s work has appeared on newyorker.com;  this is her print debut in the magazine. Ms. Lee is the fifth cartoonist to debut this year, and the twenty-ninth cartoonist brought aboard since Emma Allen took the reins of the cartoon department in May of 2017.

The Cartoons:

A quick tour through the issue and we find Roz Chast’s take on the tale of the Little Red Hen, Lars Kenseth’s commemorative pizza plate, Sophia Warren’s office politics mouse maze, Tom Chitty’s genie who specializes in just one thing, P.C. Vey’s couple’s abrupt waking in the night,  a Will McPhail long-lasting roller coaster, Karen Sneider’s desert island delirium, Frank Cotham’s concerned waiter, BEK’s second-guessing God, Victoria Robert’s juggling husband, Harley Lin’s lawyer, client and rubber band ball… and the aforementioned Ms. Lee, with a drawing of Death and the five second rule. Ms. Robert’s and Mr. Chitty’s drawings are given the most breathing room.

Twelve cartoons; Twenty-one illustrations — approximately five-and-a-half of them are full page.

Even More George Price

Attempted Bloggery continues its Price Fest, with close-up looks at the artist’s originals. See it here!

I’ve always found Price’s split lines intriguing. Sorry I never had the opportunity to ask him about his style.  I only was in the same room (an office) with him once, ages ago — unfortunately it wasn’t the time or place to start asking questions.

Cartoon Companion Goes On Hiatus; More Price, Close Up; Today’s New Yorker Daily Cartoonist: Brooke Bourgeois

The Cartoon Companion  fellows, Max and Phil (and now revealed as Rex Hesner, and the cartoonist, Phil Witte), have announced they are moving on to another pasture. The Spill wishes them well as they delve ever deeper into this peculiar art form.  Read about the move here.  

The departure of Cartoon Companion leaves the internet devoid of a site devoted to critical commentary about the New Yorker‘s cartoons. I hope another pops up sooner than later.
