NYC: Cartoonists Drawing on the Walls at the Overlook Lounge

Three times, cartoonists have gotten together and drawn on the walls of the Overlook Lounge in Manhattan. Once in 1976, again in 2005 and a third time, just last week, on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. I helped put together the 2005 event, with the Daily News' Bill Gallo. This time around, Ed Steckley gathered up cartoonists from the worlds of syndicated comics, editorial cartoons and The New Yorker. Here are a few photos.
