The Monday Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of April 29, 2019; Seven Earth Day Animations By Liza Donnelly For CBS This Morning; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Tom Toro; Reminder! Tomorrow At Word Bookstore, A Trio Of New Yorker Cartoonists; Lost Gems By Charles Addams, Barbara Shermund, William Steig, And Syd Hoff From Dick Buchanan

The Cover: As mentioned here days back, Bob Staake’s cover was (very) early released. You can read what Mr. Staake has to say about it here

The Cartoonists:

This is Darrin Bell’s first appearance in the magazine since his Pulitzer win was announced.

 The cartoon by Miriam Katin marks her debut appearance in the magazine.  She is the 9th new cartoonist brought into the stable this year, and the 34th new cartoonist brought in since Emma Allen became cartoon editor in May of 2017.

The Cartoons:

Three cartoons especially stood out this week.

  Joe Dator‘s world continues to fascinate. His floating mammals drawing (p.34) is about as good as it gets. The drawing itself is great, as is the caption. If the Cartoon Companion guys were still in the business of rating cartoons, this would certainly be awarded their blue ribbon. 

Another contender is Ed Steed‘s trapeze artists with baby (p.28). For me, it’s the best baby-centric New Yorker drawing since Zach Kanin’s wonderful drawing of July 7, 2008, “I can feel the baby kicking.”

Charlie Hankin‘s cartoon (on p.64):  like desert island drawings, the cartoon scenario of a person seated by the fire with their mounted trophies up on the wall has been around in the cartoon universe for a very long time. Mr. Hankin has given us a terrific “If I Had A Hammer” moment.

Finally…

Rea Irvin’s classic Talk masthead has not yet been returned — its replacement, a re-draw, continues to appear.  Read about the unfortunate situation here. Below is the real thing.

Below: Mr. Irvin himself, looking a little frustrated?
