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).
