A slightly different Monday Tilley Watch this week…I’m listing my first response as I (electronically) flip through the issue, as if the drawings are flashcards.
Bruce Eric Kaplan…rodents and a tiger — I really like the tiger.
Lars Kenseth…a Snidely Whiplash reversal. Funny that the train is a toy (shades of Charles Addams).
Tom Cheney…internet mischief in olden times.
John Klossner…support food. Wonder what kind of animal is being served.
Harry Bliss…Jake LaMotta on ice. A very outta left field drawing.
Roz Chast…a wicked queen’s magic mirror, updated.
Paul Noth…a patient prefers male doctors.
Pia Guerra…a sacred cow & more
Ed Steed…strong strange man drawing, or strange strong man drawing.
William Haefeli…a lesson in capitalization.
Seth Fleishman…a turkey display, with color.
Joe Dator…a NYC tour bus. Finally, a comment on those noisy things that rumble around the great metropolis.
Frank Cotham…a witness explains.
Teresa Burns Parkhurst …an egg ponders. A candidate for The New Yorker Book of Poultry Cartoons.
Mike Twohy…a doggy snow globe. I can’t get enough of dogs and snow globes.
