Improv with New Yorker Cartoonists

When you think of The New Yorker, you think about two things — long-form articles and legendary cartoons. The two art forms have gone hand-in-hand since the magazine began publishing in 1925, and, decades later, a younger generation of cartoonists still delivers the laughs. Thanks to the Gel Conference 2011 (see all videos here), you can spend 25 minutes inside their artistic world. Matt Diffee, Drew Dernavich, and Zach Kanin talk about their sometimes controversial work at the magazine and draw improv cartoons based on audience suggestions. Fun guaranteed for all. H/T @opedr
