Fave Photos Of The Day: Funny Ladies At The Society Of Illustrators

Here are a number of photos from last night’s terrific Society of Illustrators event, Funny Ladies: The Changing Landscape of Cartooning [at The New Yorker].

Above, the panelists standing in the aisle, pre-talk: Emily Flake, in mango-colored shirt, her back to the camera, ala Paul McCartney on the backside of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper lp;  just visible over her shoulder, Amy Kurzweil. Then, in profile, Liza Donnelly (who curated the Funny Ladies Exhibit and served as moderator for last night’s panel, and the previous panel in August); Center, looking right at the camera, is Emma Allen, the New Yorker‘s cartoon editor; Sara Lautman, in plaid; far right, in profile, Amy Hwang.

Below: the panelists, l-r:  Hwang, Kurzweil, Lautman, and Flake. On screen, Liza Donnelly’s developing live-drawing of the panel (that’s her below drawing on her iPad).
