Report to Legal Management, May 1993

As I've said before, "billable hours" are very important to lawyers. This is another gag that I've obviously slanted to appeal to my "law" markets.






Self-portraits of 52 cartoonists (from 1985)


In 1985, the Cartoonists Association sponsored an exhibition of original cartoon art at the Master Eagle Gallery in Manhattan. For a poster announcing the show, the participating cartoonists drew self-portraits.

I thought you'd like to see them. There are lots of "big" names here and many are still actively cartooning, especially with The New Yorker. And, sadly, there are quite a few who are no longer cartooning or who have passed away.

Here they are. I've typed in the names of the cartoonists below each set of self-portraits, in case you can't decipher them. For some unfathomable reason P.C. Vey appears twice, with different drawings. There are two self-portraits that I can't identify. They are either Felipe Galindo, Jared Lee or Skip Morrow. If anyone can help me out here, I'd appreciate it.

Last six "How Not to Get an Okay' cartoons by Stan Fine


In the late 1950's, Stan Fine did these "How Not to Get an Okay" cartoons for Look magazine cartoon editor Gurney Williams. Williams included them in a monthly newsletter he put out for cartoonists who dropped by his office on Wednesday "Look Day". I have written about this extensively, and my most recent posting was just a few weeks ago -- you'll find it right here.

I have 26 issues of the newsletter, dating from April 1957 through August 1959, with a few months obviously missing. So this collection is by no means complete. Does anyone else out there have copies of Gurney Williams' "Memos" ? Just wondering.
