SHEEN MEETS MANKOFF: New Yorker cartoon editor offers his own mash-up

By Michael Cavna

Enough with simply putting Charlie Sheen's quotes to New Yorker cartoons. The magazine's cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, tells Comic Riffs he felt compelled to put Charlie Sheen in New Yorker cartoons.

Mankoff writes on his New Yorker blog that it got his "own 'tiger blood' up when I found out that the 'pure gold' of his quotes were being mashed up with New Yorker cartoons in a way that was too random for my effete sensibility."

Comic Riffs suggested Tuesday morning that a Sheen-meets-New-Yorker-cartoons mashup (a la Kanye West's tweets) was inevitable. By that afternoon, Matt Stopera had taken the Sheen/NYT challenge.

Writes Mankoff of his own Sheen-mug mash-ups (which you can view here): "I figured, as Charlie is presently not working anywhere, he might as well appear in a few of my cartoons."
