Website of Interest: CEM (Charles E. Martin); Chris Weyant’s Boston Daily Cartoon

Here’s a link to a website devoted to the work of Charles E. Martin, better known to the New Yorker readership as CEM. Martin, who died in 1995 at the age of 85, began contributing to The New Yorker in 1938 (his first appearance was a cover). He went on to create nearly two hundred more covers for the magazine as well as just over four hundred cartoons. The website features a short film about his life.

And in case you missed it: here’s Chris Weyant on Bob Mankoff’s weekly New Yorker blog speaking about the Daily Cartoon he created following the tragedy in Boston.

The Next Daily Cartoonist is…

Danny Shanahan’s Facebook page (Danny Shanahan — New Yorker Cartoonist) mentions that his successor in the Daily Cartoon slot is Chris Weyant.  Danny was the Daily Cartoonist for the past two months.


A slideshow of Danny’s Daily Cartoon work can be seen by clicking on the Daily Cartoon link above (where you can also view The Daily Cartoon work of David Sipress, Danny’s predecessor.
