Robert Andrew Parker, whose illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, is the center of attention for two events this early part of the new year. The info for one is above, and here’s the information for the other (a New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium event at Parsons).

Attempted Bloggery has had plenty of interesting Peter Arno posts this week. Check ’em out!
…and from the Department of Self-promotion:
just six days til Peter Arno: The Mad Mad World of The New Yorker’s Greatest Cartoonist is released. Pre-order here.
Ink Spill has a history of sometimes traveling afield (but not too far & afield) from New Yorker cartoonist territory. Here’s an event kindly brought to my attention: The New York Comics & Picture-story Symposium. Link here to their program — the next event is scheduled for March 31st.
(My thanks to Ben Katchor for the link)
Attempted Bloggery is now up to The New Yorker’s sixth issue in its fascinating series of close-looks. Go see!
