Medical Economics, November 27, 1995

In the mid-1990’s, the monthly publication Medical Economics started running a feature called “Funny Bones”, in which the editors showcased the work of some of the cartoonists who had been gracing their pages. As one of their featured contributors, I was invited to be a part of the running series. It would involve them purchasing a bunch of new cartoons from me, and would also include a photo and a short bio. Of course I was glad to accept and my wife took many photos of me at my drawing board (the photo they used is the one that I still show at the top of this archive/blog).

Here is the two-page spread that appeared. Note that the publication removed my signatures from the individual panels. 

Hopefully, you’ll be able to zoom in on the pages for easier reading.

Bought and Paid For, But Never Published. National Business Employment Weekly, 1999

 

There’s really no mystery as to why this cartoon was never published by National Business Employment Weekly. It was bought and paid for in July 1999, just a few months before Dow Jones, the parent company, decided to cease publication. During its lifetime, NBEW published over a hundred of my cartoons. The Editor very kindly returned my original drawing to me.
