One of my favorite finds was Frank Modell‘s spot drawing of George Washington in the issue of February 19, 1949…
Modell had such an easy way with his art; a friendly style from a great cartoonist.
Also arrived this week was Lots Of Limericks (courtesy of a loyal Spill reader, Daniel Borinsky — my thanks to him!). The book is top heavy with illustrations by another great New Yorker cartoonist, Richard Taylor.
Taylor illustrated more books than I can count. I’m not sure who illustrated more: Taylor or Otto Soglow.
