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.

 

Chris’s editorial cartoons can be seen on The Hill, where his  Weyant’s World is a regular feature.

“A Little Cartoonist Eye Candy for New Year’s Eve” 

—  photographs of cartoonist’s work spaces. A fun post.

 

From The University of Connecticut’s Art & History site,

“Two Exhibitions will feature work by Professor Emeritus Gus Mazzocca and His Students”

I was honored to be selected as one of Professor Mazzocca’s students exhibiting work.

 

 Danny Shanahan recently announced through Facebook that he’s next in line for The New Yorker’s Daily Cartoon online feature.  David Sipress has been supplying work since the feature began (sorry, no link. Just go to newyorker.com.  Danny’s work will begin appearing any day now). And speaking of Danny:  now you can find him on Facebook at Danny Shanahan — New Yorker Cartoonist.  You’ll find photographs of cartoonists,  unpublished Shanahan cartoons and more.

 

And finallyA note of thanks to all of you who dropped by this year. Ink Spill attracted close to a million-and-a-half hits in 2012 — an encouraging number for a site that elects to cover such a tiny sliver (i.e., New Yorker cartoonists) of a very large field (all cartoonists).

2013 should be chock full of fun posts as The New Yorker’s 88th anniversary arrives in February and the 109th anniversary of Peter Arno’s birth in just about a week. Ink Spill will increase its interviews this coming year, including a talk this summer with Peter Steiner on the occasion of the 16th anniversary of the publication of his famous New Yorker cartoon, “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.”

Happy New Year to all!

Liza Donnelly has posted on her blog  a handful of photographs taken at the event.
