Two recent posts on The New Yorker’s website, newyorker.com:
The magazine’s Cartoon Editor, Bob Mankoff, takes a look at marriage cartoons (what with all the marriage talk in the air and in Washington, D.C.) in his weekly blog post.
Liam Walsh and Benjamin Schwartz, two of the more recent recruits in The New Yorker‘s cartoonist fold collaborate on “Hey Look!” — their graphic report on a recent visit to see the Harvey Kurtzman exhibit at the Society of illustrators.
New Yorker cartoonists turned out in time honored fashion to celebrate the holidays last night. Corey Pandolph gets a heap of credit for procuring a corner of the Upper East Side Hi Life Restaurant where nearly two dozen contributors came together in good cheer. Among those attending, including Mr. Pandolph: Joe Dator, David Borchardt, Liam Walsh (who brought and shared a tray of cookies), Andy Friedman, Liza Donnelly, Robert Leighton, Bob Esmay, Emily Flake, Drew Dernavich, Farley Katz, John O’Brien, Avi Steinberg (celebrating his first appearance in the magazine), Barbara Smaller, Felipe Galindo, David Sipress, Bob Eckstein, Eric Lewis, Ward Sutton, Christopher Weyant, Ben Schwartz, and Karen Sneider.
Liza Donnelly has posted on her blog a handful of photographs taken at the event.

New Yorker cartoonist Liam Walsh brought this intersection of Steinberg and Alfred Hitchcock to my attention. From Hitchcock’s 1955 film, The Trouble with Harry, the opening credits.
Ink Spill visitors might remember that Liam also alerted this site to another Hitchcock/New Yorker connection. In Hitchcock’s 1944 film, Lifeboat, Eustace Tilley has a cameo at the 2:04 mark (sorry, you’ll have to find the Youtube clip).
