A Correction: In yesterday’s post concerning the Daily Shouts trio of Amy Kurzweil, J.A.K. and Ellis Rosen, I suggested that the trio effort may have been a Shouts first.

There was at least one previous trio: the July 20, 2018 Shouts by Sharon Levy, Olivia de Recat, and Lars Kenseth. My thanks to my colleague, Jeremy Nguyen for bringing this to my attention.

Book of Interest: Seth’s “Clyde Fans”

Out on bookstore shelves on April 30th from Drawn & Quarterly, Seth’s latest, Clyde Fans.  In the meantime, here’s a Publisher’s Weekly piece about it. Seth (Gregory Gallant) began contributing to The New Yorker in 2002.  Below, right, one of his covers.

Further recommended reading: Seth’s 1996 It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken.

The PW article says about it: “Seth’s first graphic novel…seemed to be a memoir of the author’s attempts to track down a New Yorker cartoonist who had a brief flash of success in the ’40s—but the whole thing was fiction.”

A Steve Martin & Harry Bliss Collaboration; The Tilley Watch Online, March 17-22, 2019

A Steve Martin & Harry Bliss Collaboration

Slipped onto newyorker.com late in the day yesterday was the above Bonus Daily cartoon.  Sharp-eyed readers will note that the drawing is co-authored: Bliss/Martin.  I asked Harry Bliss if his collaborator was indeed the Steve Martin, and if so, how it came to be that they worked together.  Mr. Bliss responded in an email:

Yes, it is that Steve. Steve was having dinner with Francoise [Francoise Mouly, the New Yorker’s Art Editor]  and others and mentioned he had a couple dog cartoon ideas, also mentioned he was a fan of my work, so Francoise put us together. This was about three weeks ago and since then we have been collaborating daily, sort of creative email back-and-forth ‘dance’ on various cartoon ideas, most of which will either appear in the magazine and in syndication. It’s a total blast.

Mr. Bliss began contributing to The New Yorker in 1998. Link here to his website.  

Note: this isn’t the first time Mr. Martin has collaborated  with a New Yorker artist.  He and Roz Chast co-authored the 2007 book,The Alphabet From A to Y With The Bonus Letter Z!
