Bud Grace On His 2nd New Yorker Cartoon

Bud Grace, writes on his blog about his second New Yorker drawing, and a particularly good edit by the then cartoon editor, Lee Lorenz.

Not to be too nit-picky about this, but Mr. Grace identifies the above as his second New Yorker cartoon, yet I’m unable to find his first on the New Yorker‘s database. Perhaps he sold two, and only one (the one above)  appeared? Mr. Grace, if you see this,  please advise.

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. Stevenson’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

Stevenson interned as an office boy at The New Yorker in the mid 1940s when he began supplying ideas for other NYer artists. Nine years later he was hired a full-time ideaman, given an office at the magazine and instructed not to tell anyone what he did. He eventually began publishing his own cartoons and covers as well as a ground-breaking Talk of the Town pieces (ground breaking in that the pieces were illustrated). His contributions to the magazine number over 2000. Key collections: Sorry Lady — This Beach is Private! ( MacMillan, 1963), Let’s Boogie ( Dodd, Mead, 1978). Stevenson has long been a children’s book author, with roughly one hundred titles to his credit.
