Sketchbook: Queen of Hearts by Company XIV

What happens when you give 8 New Yorker cartoonists free tickets to a burlesque show?

On Friday night a bunch of @NewYorkerMag cartoonists and illustrators were invited to Brooklyn to live sketch the incredible burlesque show #QueenOfHearts by Austin McCormick and Company XIV based on Alice in Wonderland.

✒️Our classy scribble gang consisted of:

Ellis J. Rosen, Jenny Kroik, Sofia Warren, Jason Adam Katzenstein (JAK), Hilary F. Campbell, Julia Rothman and Amy Kurzweil.

It was so much fun. Minds were blown.🤯 Copious free champagne was drunk. 🥂 See more in my Instagram highlights.

Thank you to @companyxiv for the invite and to @sofiawarren for organising it.
