Bob Mankoff of Esquire share his experiences at The New Yorker and being a Cartoonist

Published

on

Today’s guest on the show is Esquire’s Cartoon and Humor Editor, Bob Mankoff.

 

I had the opportunity to visit Bob at the Esquire offices and we had a serious conversation about humor. I mean we really had a lot of fun just breaking it down into little tiny philosophical and theoretical morsels and then putting it back together again.

We also talked about his position at Esquire, augmenting human creativity, two cool cats, the balls to be funny, submitting cartoons, intense logic studies and much much more.

Artist Statement

Drawing from the diverse cultural and geographic makeup of his Californian roots, Greg Miller explores his relationship with the space he inhabits to communicate a particular urban experience. Working with both paint and collage, he constructs and deconstructs exploring the contradiction, ambiguity, and truth between urban streetscape and history.

Miller’s art is clever and cool. His abstracted backgrounds of drips, patterns, and phrases and the peeling back of layers provide a study in the impermanence of the things that surround us. His large-scale paintings and installations aim to make the most fleeting parts of American culture tangible. They grab us nostalgically, rousing us to enjoy the momentary beauty found in the impermanent parts of our lives. There is a fragile heroicness conveyed within the temporary nature of it all, especially within his construction of paper, wood, and natural materials, that gives Miller’s work liveliness and depth.

Greg Miller’s work is featured in numerous museum and private collections that have traveled internationally including those organized by the Charles Saatchi Collection and the Frederick R. Weisman Collection. The Get Go, a volume of his writings, photography and paintings, was published in 2010, and the first comprehensive monograph on the artist, Signs of the Nearly Actual, was published in 2008.

Miller spends his time between New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA.
