Fave Photo Of The Day: Sorel & Gerberg
Meant to post this a few weeks back. It was taken at The New York Historical Society opening for Mort Gerberg’s exhibit. That’s Mr. Gerberg on the left and the great Edward Sorel on the right.
The exhibit, “Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorker’s Perspective” runs through May 5th.

Bud Grace On His 2nd New Yorker Cartoon
Bud Grace, writes on his blog about his second New Yorker drawing, and a particularly good edit by the then cartoon editor, Lee Lorenz.
Not to be too nit-picky about this, but Mr. Grace identifies the above as his second New Yorker cartoon, yet I’m unable to find his first on the New Yorker‘s database. Perhaps he sold two, and only one (the one above) appeared? Mr. Grace, if you see this, please advise.
