David Langdon’s “Langdon At Large”; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Peter Kuper; Yesterday’s Bonus Daily Cartoon & Daily Shouts

David Langdon’s “Langdon At Large”

Was much fun to find the above scan of David Langdon’s 1958 collection, Langdon At Large awaiting in my inbox this morning, courtesy of  Warren Bernard, the executive director of SPX (and author of the terrific, Cartoons For Victory).  Mr. Bernard excels at digging up cartoon surprises. Until ten minutes ago I’d never seen the cover of this 61 year old book.  As a bonus, the back cover features a photo of Mr. Langdon (that will be added to his entry on the Spill‘s A-Z).

Here’s Mr. Langdon’s entry on the A-Z:

David Langdon born, London, February 24, 1914. His work is perhaps most identified with Punch, where he contributed from 1937 through 1992, when Punch ceased to publish. He was elected to the Punch Table in 1958. New Yorker work: 1945 -1973. Key book: Langdon At Large ( Wingate, 1958)

Advertising Work by New Yorker Cartoonists, Pt. 32: George Price

It’s more than fair to say no one drew like George Price. His work looks like a cartoon schematic.  And then there are those somewhat mysterious split lines. Looking at one of his original drawings up real close you can see that the splits were created by his drawing over and over (and over) his original pen stroke. He’d build up the line, and sometimes be off enough to create a parallel line. A fascinating style.

 Surprising (to me anyway) that it’s taken til Part 32 of this series to get to Mr. Price as he is a New Yorker cartoon god. He contributed to the magazine for 62 years, becoming one of only 23 members of the K Club (his work was published over a thousand times in The New Yorker). The database shows the exact number to be 1, 279 (including his one cover, above right).   

Here are just some of many ads by Mr. Price, all courtesy (as usual in this series) of SPX’s Warren Bernard.  All Mr. Bernard’s work — the researching, scanning, organizing, sharing — is greatly appreciated.

Below: two Durkee’s ads: on the left from 1955, and the other 1957. Scotch Tape, 1947; Peterman Ant Killer, 1946; American Express, 1954; Del Monte, 1969

 

Here’s Mr. Price’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

George Price Born in Coytesville, New Jersey, June 9, 1901. Died January 12, 1995, Engelwood, New Jersey. New Yorker work: 1929 – 1991.  To see Mr. Price’s cartoon collections visit the Spill‘s Cartoonists Library.

 

 

 

 

Advertising Work by New Yorker Cartoonists, Pt. 31: Ed Nofziger

  A brief return to the advertising series brought to you through the generosity of SPX’s Warren Bernard. Here’s work by Ed Nofziger, who contributed cartoons to the New Yorker from 1936 through 1940.

 Link to his obit from the L.A. Times, Nov. 11, 2000. 

 Link here to Mr. Nofziger’s IMDb profile

Below: Mr. Nofziger and a self portrait from Best Cartoons of the Year 1943.

Below: Mr. Nofziger’s first New Yorker cartoon, November 14, 1936. Great drawing!

And here are a few American Express ads. The first two are from 1949, and the last two from 1952.

 

 

 

The Tilley Watch Online; Advertising Work by New Yorker Cartoonists, Pt. 30: Helen Hokinson for Flit

*A Daily cartoon by Mort Gerberg:  a skier sees a warning sign(post).

*Another installment of Liana Finck’s “Dear Pepper” series on Daily Shouts.

*An animated Daily cartoon by Sharon Levy .

*Lars Kenseth’s illustrations for Rejected Versions of “The Gift of the Maji”  — a  Zack Wortman Daily Shouts piece.

Advertising Work by New Yorker Cartoonists, Pt. 30: Helen Hokinson for Flit

  Ms. Hokinson, one of the New Yorker‘s earliest stars (Peter Arno was the other) makes her second solo appearance in this series of ads with these two drawings for Flit, both from 1935.  My thanks again to SPX’s Warren Bernard for sharing these ads with us.

Helen Hokinson’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

Helen Hokinson (above) Born, Illinois,1893; died, Washington, D.C., 1949. New Yorker work: 1925 -1949, with some work published posthumously. All of Hokinson’s collections are wonderful, but here are two favorites. Her first collection: So You’re Going To Buy A Book! (Minton, Balch & Co, 1931) and what was billed as “the final Hokinson collection”: The Hokinson Festival (Dutton & Co., 1956)

*For more reading on Ms. Hokinson there’s no better place to go but Liza Donnelly’s  Funny Ladies: The New Yorker’s Greatest Women Cartoonists and Their Cartoons (Prometheus, 2005). Foreword by Jules Feiffer.  Preface by Lee Lorenz.
