When One Cartoon Is (Very) Much Like Another’s

From The Boston Globe, September 5, 2019, “Did a biotech exec crib a New Yorker cartoon?”— this piece about a cartoon recently published that closely resembles one by the late great Eldon Dedini published in The New Yorker  November 17, 1986.

Here’s Eldon Dedini’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z:

Eldon Dedini ( Photo source: Esquire Cartoon Album, 1957) Born 1921, King City, Calif. Died Jan.12, 2006, Carmel, Calif. NYer work: 1950 – 2003. Collection: The Dedini Gallery ( Holt, Rhinehart and Winston, 1961)

A Barry Blitt Interview I Missed

Luckily the Design Observer just brought this Barry Blitt interview out of their archive and re-posted it.  I missed it when it was originally posted in December of 2017.  And lucky forThe Spill, it caught the eye (and ear) of a friend who’s in the design biz up Beantown way  — I thank him for it.
