…The latest issue of The New Yorker (it’s a double, covering June 5th & June 12th) contains a debut cartoon by Maddy Dai. Here’s her website.
After a bunch of fun posts about the cartoonist, William Von Riegen, Stephen Nadler at Attempted Bloggery has focused on yet another New Yorker cartoonist whose name might not be familiar to many of us: Buford Tune. Mr. Tune is a member of Ink Spill‘s “One Club” (meaning he had just one cartoon published in The New Yorker in his career, in the issue of October 10, 1936). Mr. Nadler shows us several College Humor drawings by Mr. Tune. Read all about it here.
This upcoming retrospective of Art Young’s work (to be published by Fantagraphics) was mentioned here awhile back, but is worth noting again as the pub date approaches (August 1). And now there’s a cover to show!
Of further interest: the Art Young Gallery in Bethel Connecticut.
Here’s Mr. Young’s entry on the A-Z:

From Comics Alliance, “Putting the ‘Comic’ in ‘Comic Book’: A Tribute to John Stanley” by Benito Ceren. Mr. Stanley is a member of Ink Spill‘s “One Club” (One Club membership is limited to cartoonists who had but one drawing in The New Yorker during their career). Mr. Stanley’s cartoon — an eight panel captionless drawing — appeared in The New Yorker March 15, 1947.

A very nice piece, “Ink-Slinger Profiles by Alex Jay: Gardner Rea” from The Stripper’s Guide. Gardner Rea‘s work appeared in The New Yorker from its very first issue all the way through 1965. [Mr. Rea pictured in 1914]
