Weekly Cartooning


New Yorker cartoons have always been a great, reliably witty take on the form, rounding out each magazine with their humor. Many of us have come to know the cartoonists by their idiosyncratic styles, so it’s welcome news to see this Kickstarter campaign for “Very Semi-Serious,” a new documentary that goes behind the scenes of the New Yorker’s cartoon department. Leah Wolchok and Davina Pardo’s film will show us the characters behind the cartoons, and the process involved in both the creation of each simple, sophisticated sketch and how the chosen few make it into the final magazine. Only a few days left to support!
