The Tilley Watch Online, November 5-9, 2018; Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind; Short Interview Of Interest: Art Spiegelman

The emphasis was, of course(!), on the political this week, with at least half of the Daily Cartoons specifically Trump-centered (Farley Katz‘s Amazon drawing referencing hometown baseball and  “Midnight Cowboy” (?) was an exception).  The other contributing New Yorker cartoonists were Ellis Rosen, Kim Warp, Lars Kenseth, Brendan Loper, and Mort Gerberg.

Over on Daily Shouts, Olivia de Recat and Tom Chitty were the contributing New Yorker cartoonists (Ms. de Recat twice).

Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind

The always entertaining and enlightening A New Yorker State Of Mind: Reading Every Issue Of The New Yorker looks at the issue of October 26, 1929 (with Theodore Haupt’s beautiful cover). Key quote from this post:

Although two months remained in the decade, the New Yorker of the Roaring Twenties effectively ended with this issue, just days before a massive market crash sent the nation spiraling into the Great Depression.

Here are a number of photos from last night’s terrific Society of Illustrators event, Funny Ladies: The Changing Landscape of Cartooning [at The New Yorker].

All photos courtesy of Stephen Nadler, who runs the essential New Yorker cartoon/cartoonist-centric blog, Attempted Bloggery.

Above, the panelists standing in the aisle, pre-talk: Emily Flake, in mango-colored shirt, her back to the camera, ala Paul McCartney on the backside of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper lp;  just visible over her shoulder, Amy Kurzweil. Then, in profile, Liza Donnelly (who curated the Funny Ladies Exhibit and served as moderator for last night’s panel, and the previous panel in August); Center, looking right at the camera, is Emma Allen, the New Yorker‘s cartoon editor; Sara Lautman, in plaid; far right, in profile, Amy Hwang.

Below: the panelists, l-r:  Hwang, Kurzweil, Lautman, and Flake. On screen, Liza Donnelly’s developing live-drawing of the panel (that’s her below drawing on her iPad).
