The Monday Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of May 25, 2020: CBS Sunday Morning’s Mini-Slideshow; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon

It’s become (almost) the norm during these strange days, weeks, and months that the online digital edition of The New Yorker is not as yet posted by this time of day (early morning that is). Back in the pre-shutdown days it usually appeared in the wee hours (usually around 3 a.m.). There was even a time before that when it was posted, in a sort of dramatic reveal, at the stroke of midnight.

I’ll post more about the new issue later in the day when I have the online issue in front of me. If possible I like seeing the cartoons as they appear on the magazine’s pages before saying a thing about them. I’ve already seen them this morning as they appear in the slideshow found on this page and, despite what I just said about commenting, have already said something about one of the drawings.

Update: The digital issue was all ready to go this mornin (May 19). A few additions to the Monday Tilley Watch below, as well as some content removed.

The Cover: I had a hunch we’d see a Barry Blitt cover much sooner than later following his Pulitzer…and bingo!

Read the short Q&A with him here about the cover.

The Cartoonists:  I’ve * the two cartoonists who are newbies, Kate Isenberg and Suzy Becker. The two newbies are the seventh and eighth new cartoonists to join the stall this year and the sixtieth and sixty-first to be brought in under Emma Allen’s cartoon editorship that began in May of 2017.

  Ellis Rosen, Liana Finck, Zachary Kanin, P.C. Vey, Edward Koren, Victoria Roberts, Teresa Burns Parkhurst, Navied Mahdavian, Hartley Lin, Tom Toro, Elisabeth McNair, *Kate Isenberg*, Roz Chast, Sofia Warren, Jared Nangle,*Suzy Becker*

The Cartoons:

Really enjoyed Victoria Robert‘s celebrity drawing and caption, as well as Edward Koren‘s family cliff-climbing outing. Lovely drawings. Also catching my eye: Elisabeth McNair‘s fun take on the famous Magritte pipe (This Is Not A Pipe).  and Jared Nangle‘s Jack-In-The-Box.

 

The Rea Irvin Talk Masthead Watch: Mr. Irvin’s classic Talk masthead (below) is still in storage…but hopefully not forever. Read about it here.

The Weekend Spill: When New Yorker Cartoonists Provide Recording Industry Covers; The Tilley Watch Online, May 4th-8th, 2020; Wired Discontinues Buying Cartoons

When New Yorker Cartoonists Provide Recording Industry Covers

When I spotted a story online about Liana Finck providing the cover art for a new single by Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber (above left) it made me think of a few other New Yorker cartoonist covers over time. Most recently there was Ed Steed’s Grammy winning cover for Father John Misty’s Pure Comedy album (above right).

Then there’s Edward Sorel‘s terrif cover art for the cassette release of Jack And The Beanstalk (read by Monty Python’s Michael Palin!).

In the 1990s Roz Chast provided a truckload of covers for a Mad About series.

In 1955, William Steig provided the album cover art for The Duke’s Men (just one of several Steig covers over the years)

And going back 60 years, this classic by Peter Arno for The Pajama Game:

Wired Discontinues Buying Cartoons
