NEW YORKER Cartoonist Happenings

In addition to the David Sipress Williams College lecture, here are a few more recent links to New Yorker cartoonists.

Kim Warp Interview
The New Yorker Blog asks Kim Warp about her life as a cartoonist in its most recent "Meet the Cartoonist" segment.
"Yes, I have a studio. I call it a studio because Sam Gross told me if you call it a studio, you can charge more than if you call it an office. Is that true?"
Nick Downes Profile
My former Brooklyn neighbor answers many questions at the David Wasting Paper blog.

Question: If you could give one piece of advice to someone who wants to pursue drawing as a career what would it be?

Nick Downes: Go for it if you love it, but, it might not love you back.

Hat tips to Michael Maslin and Eli Stein!
