Idea drawings............................

Friend Jeff, aware of my fascination with cartoons from The New Yorker, pointed me to this TED talk.  Bob Mankoff, the lucky guy that gets to choose 17 cartoons out of the 1000 submitted each week (and a pretty fair cartoonist in his own right), analyses humor for us.  It's a good investment of twenty minutes.  Enjoy

  1. As a recent subscriber to the New Yorker, and someone who grew up with the magazine in our home my feeling about New Yorker cartoons is the same as the way I felt about Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. For a while I tuned in often in the hope that something would be funny and occasionally something was. Mostly it was sort of an empty disappointment. I eventually gave up. New Yorker cartoons are like that.
