The Latest American Bystander; Jason Chatfield’s Covid-19 Diary; Daily Cartoon & Daily Shouts Cartoonists (Yesterday’s & Today’s)…And Barry Blitt’s Kvetchbook

The latest American Bystander (March 2020) has landed on my desk —  it’s a treat!  Here are The New Yorker cartoonists whose contributions you’ll find in the issue (and in the case of John Cuneo, on the issue’s cover):

George Booth (besides a full-page Booth drawing there’s a lovely photo of Mr. Booth on the very last page), Roz Chast (a two-page spread of her cartoons), Sam Gross (in “Sam’s Spot”, a regular Bystander feature), Peter Kuper, David Ostow, Ali Solomon, Rich Sparks, Cerise Zelenetz, and P.S. Mueller.

A bonus in every issue — I see it as a bonus anyway — are the numerous full page ads for books by cartoonists (no surprise, I’m particularly fond of the books by New Yorker contributors). In this issue we see an ad for Rich Spark’s cartoon collection, Love And Other Weird Things, Ben Katchor’s The Dairy Restaurant, Robert Grossman’s Life On The Moon, Roz Chast’s & Patty Marx’s You Can Only Yell At Me For One Thing At A Time, Peter Kuper’s adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness, and John Donohue’s All The Restaurants In New York.

Go here to the Bystander‘s website to order a copy and/or subscribe.

More New Yorker Cartoonists Helping Out: NYC Draws

Several New Yorker cartoonists (Liza Donnelly, Amy Hwang, and John Donohue) have lent their support and drawing ability to this good cause.

From the Funds site:

Air has partnered with The New York Community Trust to raise awareness for the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund.

The Fund supports NYC-based nonprofits that are trying to meet the new and urgent needs that have hit the city, with priority to nonprofits addressing essential healthcare and food insecurity, as well as arts and culture, because New York is the cultural capital of the nation.

To help spread the word, artists from around the world submitted virtual drawing lessons and donated digital coloring pages for NYCdraws. Feel free to print out pages and color them in, or upload your very own illustrations for others to enjoy! Coloring pages are free to download, but you can support us by sharing on social with the hashtag #NYCdraws. As the campaign grows and houses more and more creations, it will slowly become one, big love note to the city.
