Fave Stand-Up Photos Of The Day: Chatfield, Campbell, Varnado, Flake
We’re used to seeing photos of cartoonists at their drawing boards, hovering over their work. But here are some photos taken last night of four New Yorker cartoonists (mostly) not sitting down, but standing up, doing stand-up, on stage, in front of their projected drawings.
The occasion: “Funny On Paper; Stand-Up (With Drawings)” at Caveat. 
The Spill learned that MAD’s Sam Viviano was in the audience as well as cartoonists Ellis Rosen, Sofia Warren, Scott Dooley and Jared Nangle.
 Photos above, from the top: Hilary Campbell (seated, drawing — that’s her cartoon on the screen), Emily Flake, Victor Varnado, and Jason Chatfield; Victor Varnado on stage.

Talk Of The Town Cartoons
  No matter how many times I go through back issues of The New Yorker I always discover “new” things (“new” to me).  A for instance: when I turned to The Talk Of The Town in the issue of November 19, 1932, I saw this:
What’s unusual is that there’s a drawing (or “cartoon” if you’re less of a traditionalist) on the page; the artist is the great Carl Rose. The Talk page had (and has) been a place for spot drawings. Up til I accidentily bumped into this Talk page I’d never seen a cartoon used there before. Looking at a few issues before it, I found two earlier Talk pages using cartoons (November 5th ’32 has one by Otto Soglow, who usually supplied Spot drawings on the page, and then an Alan Dunn drawing in the November 12th ’32 issue). 
I’m glad this usage was abandoned. A cartoon used there reminds me of some other magazine, or magazines — can’t put my finger on which one or ones at the moment.
