When New Yorker Cartoonists Provide Recording Industry Covers
When I spotted a story online about Liana Finck providing the cover art for a new single by Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber (above left) it made me think of a few other New Yorker cartoonist covers over time. Most recently there was Ed Steed’s Grammy winning cover for Father John Misty’s Pure Comedy album (above right).
Then there’s Edward Sorel‘s terrif cover art for the cassette release of Jack And The Beanstalk (read by Monty Python’s Michael Palin!).
In 1955, William Steig provided the album cover art for The Duke’s Men (just one of several Steig covers over the years)

Wired Discontinues Buying Cartoons
In a May 5th email to cartoonists, the cartoon editor of Wired told contributors that “Wired will no longer be purchasing cartoons” adding, “Wired will be displaying a daily cartoon until their reservoir runs out.”
