Monday Tilley Watch: The New Yorker Issue Of June 21, 2021

The Monday Tilley Watch Takes A Glancing Look At The Art & Artists Of The Latest Issue Of The New Yorker
The Cover: animal-walker.
The Cartoonists:
Fourteen cartoons, fifteen cartoonists (Roz Chast has a sketchbook — it’s on page 63). No duos (that we know of), no newbies.
The Cartoons:
Even though we’re not in the vicinity of Halloween, I enjoyed Liana Finck’s witches and cauldron cartoon (page 56) — a simple, direct caption (my favorite kind).  Applause also for Bruce Kaplan’s bedroom drawing (page 45). A thumbs up for Zack Kanin’s graphic approach in his seagull drawing (page 30). Similarly, Amy Hwang’s suitcase full of yarn. Robert Leighton’s caption for his drawing (on page 28) is Charles Saxon*-esque — an evergreen.  
The Rea Irvin Talk Masthead Watch:
 They say nothing’s perfect, but Rea Irvin’s Talk masthead, now collecting dust on someone’s desktop folder, is. It was replaced by a redraw(!) in the Spring of 2017. Read more here.
*Charles Saxon’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:
Charles Saxon (self portrait from Best Cartoons of the Year 1947) Born in Brooklyn, Nov 13, 1920, died in Stamford, Conn., Dec 6, 1988. New Yorker work: 1943 – 1991 (2 drawings published posthumously). Key collection: One Man’s Fancy ( Dodd, Mead, 1977). One of the giants of the New Yorker’s stable of artists. He could do it all: covers, spreads, single panels.
