ITSIT Live from NCSFest 2019

That’s right, friends!

If we could imagine a list of dream guests for a podcast about coming up with New Yorker cartoons, the top of the list would be long-time cartoon editor of the New Yorker (and creator of the caption competition and the Cartoon bank), and current cartoon editor of Esquire Magazine... the man who purchased my first ever New Yorker cartoon (we all make bad decisions)...

BOB MANKOFF!

We will be in the Mariners Ballroom at 11:30am on Friday 17th May, Hyatt Huntington Beadch.

Today's New Yorker Daily Cartoon: Complaining about the cold

Mine and @Scottdool’s cartoon in The New Yorker on this chilly Tuesday...

Funny story! I got the ‘ok’ on this one while I was on set of Doodle Wars this past June. I was sitting around between takes with Hilary F. Campbell and, tired as hell, we both filled the time drawing to stay awake. I inked it in on my sketchbook before getting called away to finish the show.

Actual interesting part of the story: When this cartoon was first pitched, it was June and people were just starting to complaining about the heatwave that had just engulfed New York after a particularly frosty spring. So, the original cartoon was actually reversed. Here’s the rough:


After it had sat in the drawer at the New Yorker for the Summer (In comedy, timing is everything… same with publishing cartoons!) I decided I might switch the gag around and re-send the artwork to use when Fall decided to snap into place.

Sure enough, I woke this morning at 7am to draw up the rest of my batch and felt that fresh bite on my toes. I had a feeling we might see this cartoon today…

You can hear Scott and I coming up with this one in an earlier episode of Is There Something in This? A weekly podcast where we come up with New Yorker cartoons. Available wherever you subscribe to pods.


Come see our live show tomorrow night (Wednesday) with a VERY special mystery guest, for just $5! Tix: bit.ly/ITSITlive2018
