Today’s New Yorker Daily Cartoon

Since online is increasingly where the action is, I decided this morning that The New Yorker‘s Daily Cartoons should be recognized here, well… daily (they’ll also continue to be gathered at week’s end under The Tilley Watch Online heading along with Daily Shouts pieces contributed by cartoonists). For those who missed this Spill piece about the Daily some time back, there are a number of differences between a Daily cartoon and the cartoons you find in the print edition of The New Yorker.

Today’s Daily cartoon, concerning Brexit, is by Maddie Dai. See it here. Ms. Dai began contributing to the print edition of The New Yorker in June of 2017. Link here to her website.
