Artists of The New Yorker in Conversation with Abbi Jacobson

Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware and Maira Kalman

Celebrate The New Yorker’s rich history of brilliant, hilarious, moving artwork when some of the magazine’s most acclaimed artists sit down with Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson who recently partnered with MoMA and WNYC to create the art podcast A Piece of Work.

Adrian Tomine has created more than a dozen iconic covers for the publication, and his most recent graphic story collection, Killing and Dying, was a New York Times bestseller. Frequent New Yorker contributor Chris Ware has just published a beautiful collection of his work, Monograph, featuring contributions by Ira Glass, Francoise Mouly and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Art Spiegelman.
