How Much Is That Doggie In The New Yorker Cartoon? $8.00

How much is that doggie in The New Yorker cartoon? Apparently, it’s 8 dollars.  In a sign-of-the-times first, a New Yorker contributor is publicly selling space in his upcoming New Yorker cartoon. Paul Karasik, whose July 4th Facebook post appears below, has raffled off a piece of his creation for cash. Mr. Karasik sold the drawing just a few weeks ago (the drawing has yet to appear in the magazine).  I know, I know, you’re wondering when I’ll say something “clever” like Mr. Karasik has gone to the dogs…

Cast Recording In The Works For Peter Arno’s Hit Play, The New Yorkers

From the Never Saw This Comin’ Dept.: Playbill reports that a recording of the music from the  1930 Peter Arno play, The New Yorkers is in the works. The music was written by an up and coming composer, Cole Porter. If you want to know much much more about the play and Arno, there’s always this. Listen here to a 1939 version of “Love For Sale” — the infamous song from the play.

In an email conversation with Mr. Karasik regarding Mr. Crumb’s work he recommended I watch  this hour-long panel discussion, “Crumb, Race and Gender” at MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo).

Mr. Karasik began contributing his work to The New Yorker in 1999.

Today’s New Yorker Daily Cartoon

Since online is increasingly where the action is, I decided this morning that The New Yorker‘s Daily Cartoons should be recognized here, well… daily (they’ll also continue to be gathered at week’s end under The Tilley Watch Online heading along with Daily Shouts pieces contributed by cartoonists). For those who missed this Spill piece about the Daily some time back, there are a number of differences between a Daily cartoon and the cartoons you find in the print edition of The New Yorker.

Today’s Daily cartoon, concerning Brexit, is by Maddie Dai. See it here. Ms. Dai began contributing to the print edition of The New Yorker in June of 2017. Link here to her website.

Even More Steinberg Murals

In a Facebook discussion the other day involving murals by Charles Addams and Steinberg,  Joel Smith, who authored Steinberg At The New Yorker (Harry N. Abrams, 2005) commented on Paul Karasik‘s Facebook stream that Steinberg created two incredibly long murals: one 260 ft., and another even longer. I asked Mr. Smith where best we might go online to see the murals.  Here are his suggested links:

“The Americans” for the 1958 World’s Fair in Brussels

The Milan Triennial, 1954 (on the timeline, scroll down to 1954, the Milan Triennial)

— photo above: Steinberg on the far right, wearing hat, stands before his mural in Brussels.
