As mentioned here last week, the Brexit-inspired cover, by Mark Ulriksen, was early-released. Read about it here.
Suerynn Lee‘s work has appeared on newyorker.com; this is her print debut in the magazine. Ms. Lee is the fifth cartoonist to debut this year, and the twenty-ninth cartoonist brought aboard since Emma Allen took the reins of the cartoon department in May of 2017.
A quick tour through the issue and we find Roz Chast’s take on the tale of the Little Red Hen, Lars Kenseth’s commemorative pizza plate, Sophia Warren’s office politics mouse maze, Tom Chitty’s genie who specializes in just one thing, P.C. Vey’s couple’s abrupt waking in the night, a Will McPhail long-lasting roller coaster, Karen Sneider’s desert island delirium, Frank Cotham’s concerned waiter, BEK’s second-guessing God, Victoria Robert’s juggling husband, Harley Lin’s lawyer, client and rubber band ball… and the aforementioned Ms. Lee, with a drawing of Death and the five second rule. Ms. Robert’s and Mr. Chitty’s drawings are given the most breathing room.
Twelve cartoons; Twenty-one illustrations — approximately five-and-a-half of them are full page.
Rea Irvin’s Talk masthead masterpiece is still in mothballs. Here’s some reading material about it, and below is what it looks like.
Even More George Price
Attempted Bloggery continues its Price Fest, with close-up looks at the artist’s originals. See it here!
I’ve always found Price’s split lines intriguing. Sorry I never had the opportunity to ask him about his style. I only was in the same room (an office) with him once, ages ago — unfortunately it wasn’t the time or place to start asking questions.
Today’s Daily Cartoon/Cartoonist
Today’s Daily cartoon, regarding twenty somethings, is by Lila Ash. Ms. Ash began contributing to The New Yorker in December of 2018. Link here to her website.
