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.
Explanation: This cartoon appeared in The National Law Journal. The gag was slanted toward the legal profession and would not have been appropriate or funny had it been printed in any “general purpose” publication, like Better Homes and Gardens. Lawyers are very concerned with the “billable hours” that they can charge to a client. Very simply put, the more billable hours, the higher the income.
