Look Day for Cartoonists at The New Yorker

When Do They Serve The Wine?

Tuesday is “look day” at The New Yorker. That means cartoonists go in to the magazine on 42nd street, ride the elevator to the 20th floor and show their cartoons to the cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff. Mankoff may hold a few cartoons from each cartoonist to  take to a meeting with David Remnick later in the week. The two editors then decide our cartoon fate for the week.  Then, most of us go out to lunch at a great little restaurant in Times Square called Pergola.  This week was much the same except more cartoonists than usual showed up– I didn’t photograph as many as I wish I had. A documentary film is being made about our profession, and we just had to be there. They filmed us eating too. Doesn’t it sound like a fantastic film?
