A Cartoon or An Illustration   1 comment

The New Yorker Cover Story (October 31, 2022) by Sergio García Sánchez

First, let me say I love the work of Sergio García Sánchez. I find it very creative, using clean lines and a lot of symbolism. In the October 31, 2022, issue of The New Yorker, Sánchez uses the backdrop of the Grand Central Terminal for Halloween creators passing through the now busy terminal compared to during the pandemic. 

On May 5, 2020, I did a Cartoon du jour posting of the Sánchez cover of Walt Whitman on The New York Times Book Review cover. I first so it as a cartoon, or was it? Was it an illustration? To answer the question, I turned to David Blumenstein, who wrote a posting on Medium, Illustrations vs. Cartoons vs. Comics. What’s the difference, and when do I use each one?

Generally speaking:

Illustrations can tell you what is happening.

Cartoons can tell you how people are feeling.

That works for me, so the October 31 cover is an illustration. Thank you, David.

and a failure to act today will deeply affect the future of the Earth.

In this age of coronavirus, we are discovering joy in the minuscule and routine.

Walt Whitman Cartoon-72
Sergio García Sánchez, The New York Times Book Review

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journeywork of the stars,
And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the egg of the wren,

And the tree-toad is a chef-d’oeuvre for the highest,
And the running blackberry would adorn the parlors of heaven,
And the narrowest hinge in my hand puts to scorn all machinery,
And the cow crunching with depressed head surpasses any statue,
And a mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels,
And I could come every afternoon of my life to look at the farmer’s girl boiling her iron tea-kettle and baking shortcake.

— from Song of Myselfby Walt Whitman

Cartoon du Jour: Here’s Your Problem —   Leave a comment

Cartoon“Here’s your problem—it looks like you’re paying attention to what’s going on.”
— The New Yorker

We found this cartoon to be so true given some of the medical challenges we have had in the last few years. When you are a patient that has done your homework before meeting with your primary care doc, it can become a problem. It’s not always smart to question someone with a “God Complex.”
