Back in late May I posted interesting cover art from Rea Irvin. Today, another item from the bundle of donated materials, Excerpts From The New Yorker. As explained inside the front cover:
This 27 page pamphlet contains drawings by Alain (on the cover as well as inside), Peter Arno, Robert Day, George Price, Richard Decker, Charles Addams, Roberta MacDonald, Gluyas Williams, Frank Beaven, Alan Dunn, and Barbara Shermund.
As a bonus, this particular copy features an “R” in bold red on the cover. Art approved for publication by Harold Ross (The New Yorker‘s founder, and editor from 1925 through 1951) would bear his initial.
Liza Donnelly took this great photo of George Booth and Liam Walsh as they sat in the Cartoonists Lounge at The New Yorker today. A framed Charles Addams print lurks in the background.
From History News Network, July 13, 2014, “A Life in Cartoons: An Interview with New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff”
Rachel Loube’s short, Every Tuesday Afternoon, A Portrait of New Yorker Cartoonists, will be screened at the upcoming Rochester Jewish Film Festival. The film focuses on several cartoonists, including Emily Flake, Zach Kanin, Drew Dernavich, Sidney Harris (below left) and Mort Gerberg (below right).
From the Vineyard Gazette, July 10, 2014, “Art of Cartooning No Laughing Matter” — a piece on the upcoming exhibit at Featherstone Center for the Arts (mentioned here just the other day) featuring the work of Mick Stevens, Jules Feiffer, Paul Karasik and Denys Wortman, among others.
Also near the water, the New Yorker‘s Cartoon Editor, Bob Mankoff will be speaking at the Quogue Library this weekend. Details here.
If you’re in the neighborhood here’s a must-see exhibit that includes work by Jules Feiffer, Mick Stevens, Denys Wortman, and Paul Karasik (who is also curating the event). Details on the poster as well as on Featherstone’s website.
