Don’t let the cartoons fool you.
We have fun doing serious workTM.
American author and humorist Mark Twain wrote, “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.”
That apt quote captures the heart of the single-panel cartoons sprinkled throughout each issue of The New Yorker, an American magazine of reportage, commentary, satire, cartoons, and poetry. Founded as a sophisticated humor magazine it ultimately became a forum for serious fiction literature and journalism.
Cartoons have been featured in the magazine since it began publication in 1925. The iconic nature of cartooning—classic gags, reality-based, whimsical, satirical, philosophical, and more—is represented well in The New Yorker.
A New Yorker cartoon editor once said, “The cartoons evoke a smile of the mind. Not a belly laugh.”
At DeCamilla Capital we included them on our website pages for that very reason.
