The Weekend Spill: A Whither Now? MAD Dartboard; The Online Tilley Watch: December 16 -20, 2019; From The Archives: 1984 “The New Yorker” Cartoonists Traveling Exhibit Poster

A Whither Now? MAD Dartboard

MAD was in the news not long ago when it announced it was no longer going to turn out a brand new content-filled magazine, but rely instead on reprinting older material.  Now the folks at MAD have (sort of) given its readers a game of choice. The below graphic piece appears in the February 2020 issue, along with the news that famed artist Al Jaffee will no longer do the fold-in back page after a gazillion years of doing so.

New Yorker Cartoonists (And Cakes) At The Magazine’s Holiday Party

Here are a few scenes from last night’s merry New Yorker Holiday Party. A happy throng filled a giant room on the 33rd floor of 1 World Trade Center.

All photos courtesy of Liza Donnelly, unless otherwise attributed. My thanks to cartoonists Liza  Donnelly, Joe Dator, Felipe Galindo, and Jason Chatfield for their photos.

Party-goers brought food and drink (it was pot-luck), a nice throw-back to what I recall of department holiday parties many decades ago at the magazine’s 2nd address, 25 West 43rd Street.

 

Of the many cakes and cookies present (and presented), here’s one that sported a familiar face ( photo courtesy Joe Dator).
