Video Of Interest: David Sipress at Yale; Cartoon Companion Rates The Latest New Yorker Cartoons; Donnelly In Galway Cartoon Festival; Chatfield In Australian Exhibit

David Sipress, who has been contributing his work to The New Yorker since July of 1998, recently spoke at Yale University Art Gallery.  You can see the entire talk here — it’s generously peppered with cartoons.

Mr. Sipress has asked the Spill to include this proviso: “New Yorker cartoon aficionados will no doubt spot a number of inaccuracies in the course of this talk (dates of cartoons, people’s ages etc, and I forgot about Booth’s cartoon in the 9/11 issue). Chalk them up to onstage jitters and the mouth beating the brain to the punch.”

Above: a Sipress New Yorker cartoon from 2006.
