It’s the first non-Monday Tilley Watch day in quite awhile. Couldn’t pass up mentioning this latest issue’s cover by the great Sempe. Always a treat seeing his work.
I’d like to single out a few cartoons in the issue that surprised me (in the best way): Lars Kenseth’s sky editing cartoon (p.66), David Sipress’s ecosystem drawing (p.28), Sara Lautman’s Michelangelo drawing (p. 58), and last but certainly not least: Sam Gross’s drawing (p.93). Mr. Gross is one of the very best cartoonists of our time. Nothing would please me more than seeing one of his cartoons in every single issue.
And here’s to Rea Irvin, and his elegant missing Talk masthead. Last seen in the New Yorker in the Spring of 2017. Read about that here:
