Emily Flake*, Amy Hwang**, and Chris Weyant are the three finalists in the (gag***) “Gag Cartooning” division of the 2021 National Cartoonists Society Awards. In the running for the NCS’s “Cartoonist Of The Year” award are two New Yorker colleagues: Keith Knight, and Edward Sorel. And among the Advertising/Product Illustration award nominees is another New Yorker colleague, Ivan Ehlers. Keith Bendis is nominated for “Book Illustration.” The Spill congratulates all the nominees (New Yorker contributor, or not).  Read more here. 
*also nominated in the “Online Comics: Long Form” category

***sorry, I just do not like the word “gag” used in this instance…never have, never will. Suggested replacement: “Single Panel Cartoon.”

From Attempted Bloggery…Steigs At Auction
A Spill fave blog, Attempted Bloggery on two recent auctions of original art by the great William Steig. 
Steig’s Spill A-Z entry: 
William Steig Born in Brooklyn, NY, Nov. 14, 1907, died in Boston, Mass., Oct. 3, 2003. In a New Yorker career that lasted well over half a century and a publishing history that contains more than a cart load of books, both children’s and otherwise, it’s impossible to sum up Steig’s influence here on Ink Spill. He was among the giants of the New Yorker cartoon world, along with James Thurber, Saul Steinberg, Charles Addams, Helen Hokinson and Peter Arno. Lee Lorenz’s World of William Steig (Artisan, 1998) is an excellent way to begin exploring Steig’s life and work. NYer work: 1930 -2003.

We’re in the process of updating the category names for 2023 to better reflect the new realities of publication. We already have a single panel category for features, so for now (and to this point) the only deliniation we had was “gag cartoons”
