Advertising Age, February 11,1980


CAPTION: "Actually, this is just a sideline with me -- my major emphasis is in tv and direct mail."

Medical Economics, August 24, 1981

Medical Economics, July 6, 1981


My first published cartoon in Medical Economics -- still buying from me after 25 years.

The National Law Journal, July 18, 1988


This is the first cartoon I sold to The National Law Journal. They publish one cartoon in each weekly issue, and they've used more than fifty of mine to date.

Stock Market, October 1983


CAPTION: "No, you're not being replaced by a computer, Hoskins . . . you're being replaced by an electric paper shredder."

Stock Market, December 1980


CAPTION: "Our bellies are up 12 1/2 cents."

Stock Market was publishing quite a few of my cartoons at one time. In fact, for a while I even had a featured by-line, under the title "The Bottom Line". The magazine folded, and that was the end of that.

Saturday Review, October 1981


Never could figure out why The Saturday Review (of Literature) bought this "blind umpire" sports cartoon, but was very glad that they did.

National Business Employment Weekly, December 25, 1988


Note the date of publication -- Christmas Day, 1988. The quote, of course, is from "A Visit From Saint Nicholas". Because of its literary merit, I was hoping to sell this gag to the New Yorker, but many months before Christmas, I casually included it in a batch to NBEW -- and to my dismay the editor snapped it up. So Cartoonist/Editor Lee Lorenz at The New Yorker never had a crack at it. My advice to cartoonists: don't send it out if you don't want it sold!

Boardroom Lists, November 1983

bdrm1183.jpg This was published by Brian Kurtz in his Boardroom Lists newsletter in November 1983. You can see my original posting about Boardroom Lists here. The interesting thing about this particular cartoon is that Brian told me he liked it so much that he wanted to make a poster out of it. I told him it sounded like a great idea. The next thing I knew he published this 17" x 22" poster . . . drawn by the renowned New Yorker cartoonist Charles Barsotti! bdrmbarsottiposter.jpg I was quite taken aback and I never got a good explanation from Brian as to why he chose to ask Barsotti to re-draw my gag, instead of just blowing up my cartoon (which he had already published months before). I guess I can't fault Brian for going with a famous New Yorker cartoonist (Barsotti), instead of an almost no-name cartoonist (me). Anyway, I did eventually get my chance at a poster, too. For the opening of the 1986 baseball season, I drew a special cartoon for Boardroom Lists, and it was published (size 17" x 22", on beige poster stock paper) in May 1986. You can see it directly below.
