The Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of May 13, 2019; Ed Steed Goes To The Stadium; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Teresa Burns Parkhurst

The Cover: according to the Contributors page, this a Diana Ejaita’s first cover for the magazine. Read more here. 

The Cartoonists:

The Cartoons: Eleven cartoons this week — a lighter number than usual.  Just out of curiosity I went back to a comparable issue (date-wise) forty years ago.  This was the cartoonist line-up for the issue of May 14, 1979. Twenty-two cartoonists. 

The irony, if there is any irony here (and if you read on, you’ll see there may not be) is that back then there were far fewer regular contributors (in what was then called the art department) than there are today. At least half as many. But then again, that 1979 issue was 176 pages. This new one is 70 pages. So proportionally, not bad(?).

Rea Irvin: And speaking of the past, Rea Irvin’s Talk masthead (below) is still a-missin’. Read about it here.

Ed Steed at Yankee Stadium

From newyorker.com‘s Culture Desk, May 5, 2019, “Edward Steed visits Yankee Stadium”

— Mr. Steed applies his signature style to The House That Ruth Built (or should we say, to the house now standing next to the House That Ruth Built).

If you’re wondering if any New Yorker cartoonist had ever visited and drawn Yankee Stadium before: Liza Donnelly did (for CBS News) in 2017.  You can see the piece here.

Below: Ms. Donnelly in the Yankee’s dugout with Yankee shortstop, Didi Gregorius, watching him try-out drawing on her iPad.
