Donnelly At The Oscars

Four years ago Liza Donnelly made history as the first cartoonist to live-draw from the Oscars Red Carpet. She’s been in LaLa Land this past week drawing events leading up to tomorrow’s big day when she’ll once again live-draw from the Red Carpet. Follow her work on @Lizadonnelly .

Ms. Donnelly’s first New Yorker cartoon appeared in 1982. She is the author of eighteen books, including Funny Ladies: The New Yorker’s Greatest Women Cartoonists and Their Cartoons (Prometheus, 2005).

The Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of February 4, 2019

The Cover: Vegetation abounds. Here’s what the artist,Tom Gauld had to say about it.

The Cartoonists in the new issue:


The Magazine: Whenever February comes around, I begin thinking about the upcoming anniversary issue of The New Yorker, a favorite child here on this site (Spill visitors might remember this Tilley-centric piece I wrote for newyorker.com a few years back). Seeing Rea Irvin’s classic dandy this year would be such a welcome surprise. Even more of a surprise than, say, coming upon the now-famous Mandy the Mandarin duck in Central Park. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Irvin’s iconic cover. In fact, the last time was in 2011. So what will next week’s cover be: the dandy or a duck?

The Tilley Watch Online, November 5-9, 2018; Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind; Short Interview Of Interest: Art Spiegelman

The emphasis was, of course(!), on the political this week, with at least half of the Daily Cartoons specifically Trump-centered (Farley Katz‘s Amazon drawing referencing hometown baseball and  “Midnight Cowboy” (?) was an exception).  The other contributing New Yorker cartoonists were Ellis Rosen, Kim Warp, Lars Kenseth, Brendan Loper, and Mort Gerberg.

Over on Daily Shouts, Olivia de Recat and Tom Chitty were the contributing New Yorker cartoonists (Ms. de Recat twice).

Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind

The always entertaining and enlightening A New Yorker State Of Mind: Reading Every Issue Of The New Yorker looks at the issue of October 26, 1929 (with Theodore Haupt’s beautiful cover). Key quote from this post:

Although two months remained in the decade, the New Yorker of the Roaring Twenties effectively ended with this issue, just days before a massive market crash sent the nation spiraling into the Great Depression.
