As so often happens when I’m looking for something in The New Yorker’s database, I find something else. Such was the case recently as I was wondering how many restaurant banquette drawings appeared in the magazine (obscure, I know). After the key search word “banquette” turned up nothing I began changing search words; eventually I saw an unfamiliar cartoonist’s name turn up in the results: M. Bohanan. A quick check on the database for the artist turned up just four drawings (cartoons): February 26, 1927; March 12, 1927 (shown above); April 30, 1927; July 9, 1927. After that July drawing, M. Bohanan’s work was never seen again the magazine. Adding to this little mystery, there’s nothing — nada! — online about the artist. If anyone out there can shed some light, please contact me. In the meantime, it’s always a small rush to add a “found” cartoonist to the A-Z.
