If you search for Frank Beaven online (as I recently have) a variety of work shows up, from “girlie” magazine covers to advertising work to New Yorker appearances (he contributed 15 cartoons to the magazine between 1933 and 1946). Here’s a slight auto-biographical piece and self-portrait he contributed to the 1941 collection, Colliers Collects Its Wits. Below that are three ads by Mr. Beaven, all courtesy of Warren Bernard: Eveready (1943), Zippo (1946), and B.F. Goodrich (1946).
Below: another Eveready ad from the website, Hairy Green Eyeball, where you can find a nice collection of more Eveready ads by Mr. Beaven as well as by various cartoonists.
Below: another Zippo ad (from 1942) This one from a Zippo-centric website.
Another auto-biographical piece and self-portrait, along with a New Yorker drawing ( it appeared in the issue of March 13, 1943) from the Best Cartoons of the Year 1943:
- Here’s Mr. Beaven’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z: Franklin (Frank) Beaven Born, Lebanon, Indiana, c.1905. Died Allendale, New Jersey, 1975. New Yorker work: May 20, 1933 – March 2, 1946. Beaven also wrote articles for the old Life , and Judge. Besides The New Yorker, his cartoons appeared in Colliers, The Saturday Evening Post, Country Gentleman, and others.
2. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum posted this piece about Mr. Beaven back in 2012.
…this week’s Daily cartoon featured a senator’s eye exam (executed by David Sipress), fallen dynamos, uh, I mean dominoes courtesy of Kim Warp; a plugged-in Little Mermaid by Jeremy Nguyen; an axe-wielding President by Peter Kuper, and headlines in the morning news(paper) from Kim Warp. Daily Shouts pieces included two cartoon colleagues: Colin Tom (“Trump’s Desert-Island Sand Trap”) and Ellis Rosen (“Make Your Own G.O.P. Tax Bill”).

Tom Toro (left) has handed off The New Yorker‘s Daily Cartoon to Kaamran Hafeez. I asked Tom, who has now done the Daily twice, how it was for him the second time around. Here’s what he said:
The evenings, mornings, afternoons, I have measured out my life with Daily ‘Toons. And coffee. That too. It was a hectic midsummer, luckily for my second go-round at the helm of the Daily, six weeks stuffed full with excellent topics to satirize: the Supreme Court handing down landmark decisions every fifteen seconds, Republican candidates replicating like a beheaded hydra, the Pluto flyby, Comic Con, and on a personal level the arrival of my firstborn son. I survived the insanity by using every trick in the cartoonist’s handbag (and some stolen from the doula’s), while taking advantage of the freer format offered by web publishing to manage the job on the road. It was a whirlwind. Now I’m home again. My tenure has ended. Nap time.

A couple of days ago, A Case For Pencils was mentioned in this space as a new favorite site…today, another favorite, Attempted Bloggery brings to our attention the June 20th 1925 New Yorker (a copy recently sold at auction for $1,330.00).
