Cunard Line said that during select 2018 transatlantic crossings from June to November, cartoonists from The New Yorker magazine will host drawing sessions, workshops, hands-on demonstrations and caption contests for passengers on  the Queen Mary 2.

The "Cartoonists at Sea" program will include feature Emily Flake (July 20), Matt Diffee (June 10 and Nov. 11); David Sipress (Aug. 26) and Ben Schwartz (Oct. 7).

The New Yorker is known for its single-panel cartoons.

A 2011 cover cartoon on the U.S. economy featured a trio of plutocrats in tuxedos and top hats raising a champagne toast in a lifeboat, while behind them a Titanic-like ship sinks in the background.
