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.
I guess I have to include this cartoon in my “Bought and Paid For, But Never Published” category. As far as I know, it never saw the light of day by being printed in National Review after it was purchased. I have no idea why the editors changed their minds — it seems like a pretty innocuous statement to me.
