Here from the New Yorker, via the assistant cartoon editor, Colin Stokes is a slideshow of holiday cartoons, including Jack Ziegler’s fabulous classic full-page color piece, January 3rd at Rockefeller Center. Enjoy!
An atypical Daily week in that it was un-Trumpian. But…Emma Allen, the New Yorker‘s cartoon editor posted a slide show review of Trump cartoons from 2018. See it here.
The Daily Cartoon New Yorker contributors this week : Maggie Dai, Jason Chatfield, Elisabeth McNair, Peter Kuper, and Brendan Loper.
And over on Daily Shouts, the contributing New Yorker cartoonists: Maggie Larson, Liana Finck, Gabrielle Bell, Olivia de Recat (with Sarah Vollman), and Sara Lautman.
See all the work above, and more, here.
Also online this week: the New Yorker‘s most popular Instagram cartoons, posted by the magazine’s assistant cartoon editor, Colin Stokes.
Below: a bonus photograph from the New Yorker‘s holiday party for cartoonists last Thursday. My colleague Felipe Galindo took this that evening and posted it online.
Decades ago, in the William Shawn era, New Yorker cartoonists celebrated the holidays in-house (specifically, in-department). They’d show up at the office and drink punch provided by the art editor Lee Lorenz and his assistant, Anne Hall. Cartoonists would sample rum balls brought in by their colleague, Henry Martin. During the Tina Brown years the holiday party went big time, when all departments went out-of-office and co-mingled in (mostly) downtown establishments. Coming full circle this year’s party for cartoonists came back home to the offices (yay!). Last night’s shindig was hosted by the cartoon editor, Emma Allen, and the assistant cartoon editor, Colin Stokes (and, shades of Henry Martin, cartoonist David Borchart even brought in some homemade cookies).
Ink Spill‘s official photographer for the evening, cartoonist Liza Donnelly attended the festivities, and captured the scene.

Black Friday Reading
Still recovering from yesterday (or not) you might want to settle in with the latest post on the wonderful blog, A New Yorker State of Mind: Reading Every Issue of The New Yorker Magazine. This installment covers the issue (shown above) dated November 9, 1929. Also shown: a coffee ad from the issue by the one-and-only Helen Hokinson.
The cover of the Nov 9 ’29 issue is by Theodore G. Haupt, who contributed 44 terrific covers to The New Yorker. His debut on the cover of the issue of September 3, 1927 was immediately followed by an appearance as the cover artist for the September 10th issue. I’m not sure if this feat — a debut immediately followed by another cover appearance — was ever matched by another cover artist (someone please let me know if it was). His last cover appearance was January 21, 1933. Here’s the Wikipedia entry for Mr. Haupt.

Video Of Interest: Edward Koren
Here’s a video of interest I ran across yesterday. From 2010, recorded at the Luise Ross Gallery in NYC.
…and here’s a recent article from VtDigger, “Vermont cartoonist Ed Koren ventures ‘In The Wild'”.
Below: Mr. Koren’s latest collection of cartoons.
