An Ink Spill tradition continues with the posting of an Index for the Cartoons of the Year bookazine.   Why an Index you might ask.  Mostly because I always enjoyed seeing them in the magazine’s hardcover anthologies (the New Yorker‘s Cartoon Albums) and missed having an Index for these yearly bookazines (they started in 2010). I wouldn’t read too too much into the numbers of drawings you see listed for each cartoonist, but the Index itself is a reasonably good snapshot of the New Yorker‘s somewhat boisterous stable of cartoonists in these last few years.

You’ll see that few of the entries have a “(cc)” beside certain page numbers.  The “cc” refers to the Caption Contest.  So those particular drawings appeared on the magazine’s back page.  You might notice that there’s an asterisk next to Julia Wertz’s name.  That’s because her name does not appear on the list of contributing cartoonists found on page 4 of the bookazine. She is, however, included on the Contributors page (p.2).

And here you go:

Liza Donnelly’s World Ink, which was once part of the website, Dscriber, is now stand alone. Ink Spill asked Ms. Donnelly to talk for a moment about her site:

World Ink is a non-profit site that publishes political cartoons from around the world — countries such as Sweden, Switzerland, Nigeria, Algeria, France, Japan, China, and more. The mission of World Ink is to showcase cartoon artists in other countries as well as the U.S. and show what they think of world events, and what they think about events in their own countries.  I started the site out of love for political cartoons from abroad and with a belief that cartoon art can bring some understanding and foster dialogue about world events.

 

In a related story, here’s Donnelly’s latest Forbes column “Women’s Rights in Global Cartoons” (with a slideshow of cartoons)

Chris Weyant, who’s drawn the past 63 Daily Cartoons for The New Yorker has announced on Facebook that he’s rolled his chair back from the Daily Cartoonist desk. Long-time New Yorker cartoonist (his first drawing appeared in the magazine, July 21, 1980), Mike Twohy will be rolling his chair in.
