Blog Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind

Want to get away from this period of trial and time-travel to another period of trial? Well here’s an issue for you.

This Spill fave blog looks very closely at the contents of the March 14, 1931 issue of The New Yorker. The blog’s customary deep-dive is, as always, fascinating.

The cover is by the great Rea Irvin.

Shop Talk Of Interest: Jason Chatfield

Here’s a quick fun read from Jason Chatfield, a cartoonist colleague who wears many hats (actor, stand-up comedian, comic strip artist). Mr. Chatfield began contributing to The New Yorker in the Spring of 2017.

Read his piece, posted today:  “Shop Talk. Read before you write. Look at art before you draw. Get your head in the game.”

Pictured: inspiring art Mr. Chatfield pasted on his closet doors when he just a lad.

Early Release! Next Week’s New Yorker Cover; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; More Spills…

The third early release New Yorker cover in a month — surely a sign of the times. With the news on overdrive these days I again urge the magazine to consider running an online Daily Cover much as they run a Daily Cartoon and Daily Shouts.

In next week’s cover, Eric Drooker recalls the iconic (c.1930) photo of Grand Central by Hal Morey shown above. Read Francoise Mouly’s brief Q&A with Mr. Drooker here.
