Today’s weekly blog from The New Yorker’s Cartoon Editor features what promises to be a recurring feature, The Cartoon Lounge, a video shot in Bob Mankoff’s office at the magazine’s Times Square address (for those interested in New Yorker minutia, the actual cartoonists lounge, where cartoonists gather weekly before sitting down with the editor, is just a few feet away from the office seen in the video).
