A Virgil Partch Bonanza Via Dick Buchanan; The New Yorker:”A World Without MAD Magazine”; A Daily Bonus And Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon

A Virgil Partch Bonanza

Dick Buchanan has dug into his voluminous files for a whole lot of Virgil Partch. Mr. Partch’s cartoons  (he signed his work “VIP”) appeared in The New Yorker just a half dozen times, but could be found in many of the major (and some of the minor) magazines of his day . Mr. Buchanan gives us a wonderful four-part survey via Mike Lynch’s blog.

Dick Buchanan’s Perry Barlow File

Another great post from Dick Buchanan via Mike Lynch’s blog.  This time it’s “Perry Barlow 1932- 1961”

(Above: a Barlow from Collier’s, January 21, 1955).

From Mr. Barlow’s Spill A-Z entry:

Perry Barlow ( photo above from barlowgeneology.com) Born 1892, McKinney, Texas. Died, Westport, Connecticut, December 26,1977. New Yorker work: 1926 -1974, with 1,574 drawings and 135 covers. According to Barlow’s obit in The New York Times (Dec. 27, 1977) William Shawn called him “one of the gentlest and most humane of all comic artists…he was also one of our three or four most prolific people.” In the same piece, James Geraghty (The New Yorker’s Art editor from 1939 thru 1973) said “he often tried to interest Mr. Barlow in publishing a book of his drawings ‘but he was halfhearted about it.’” Mr. Barlow’s wife, Dorothy Hope Smith, played a role in his work: she colored-in his covers because her husband was partly color blind.
