Head to The School of Visual Arts on Monday, November 9th for a discussion by The New Yorker‘s cartoon editor as well as a screening of a documentary film. Details here.
Word has reached Ink Spill of the passing of Robert Muccio, a New Yorker cartoonist and ideaman (he contributed over 50 ideas to fellow New Yorker cartoonists). According to his obituary, Mr. Muccio worked two decades for Norcross Greeting Cards. Besides The New Yorker his work appeared in Mad Magazine, Boys Life, and The Saturday Review. He also wrote greeting cards for Hallmark, Gibson and American Greetings. Mr. Muccio was a member of Ink Spill‘s One Club, a distinction earned by cartoonists who were published just once (under their own name) in the magazine.
