The National Law Journal, July 15, 1996

More than a year after this cartoon appeared in The National Law Journal, I was surprised to see the identical gag in The New Yorker. It was in the October 13, 1997 issue and drawn by a famous New Yorker cartoonist -- same restaurant setting, exactly the same caption. Great minds thinking alike, I guess.






National Review, December 13, 1985


natrev1213851.JPG This is the first cartoon I sold to National Review. The "Cartoon Editor" in 1985 was Priscilla Buckley, sister of NR founder William Buckley, and she wrote me a nice note saying she "couldn't resist" this one. We had a very cordial relationship (by mail) until she retired in 1992, and my cartoons continued to appear in NR on an irregular basis until 1998. At about that time, NR reduced its cartoon usage to a bare minimum, which continues to this day. I saw the handwriting on the wall and just stopped submitting cartoons for consideration.
