Ah, humanity!

I did another version of this cartoon at least ten years ago, and tried to sell it several times. Finally gave up. Then, I dug it up because it's how I feel these days. Redrew it, submitted it again, and bingo! Maybe someone else felt that way, too. 



New (and award-winning) cartoons in The New Yorker!

I'd like to pretend I'm just blasé about my cartoons in The New Yorker, but it's only that I forget sometimes that I have this blog, what with Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr to keep (rather sloppily) updated. So, here's some of my latest, though not all, cartoons in The New Yorker!

This one seems to resonate with lots of people! UPDATE 2015: this cartoon won silver medal for gag cartoons 2014 at the Society of Illustrators! So, yes, I guess it does resonate... 

This next one has been a personal favorite of mine for years, and I've redrawn it many times hoping to sell it, and I finally did! I think about it every time I look at the classifieds, just before deciding to "fall back on" my artistic talents.

Here's one that's very current, what with everyone AirBnB'in their places.

This one, my friends, is verbatim a true story told to me by a friend. She now owns the original:

Lordy, I have been negligeant, haven't I! Still more! 

Slowly catching up to that cartoon I sold on 60 Minutes in the previous post. Here's one about employment, or how I imagine it:

Here's one I was surprised to sell, because it seemed rather dark (which is me, very me):

One last one, thought it's not all. Speaking of dark!

To see all the others, if I missed one or two, just see my page at the CondeNast website, here. Some are even missing from there, as they're still putting stuff on the database, but it's a good sampling!


My essay (and cover illustration) at Scratch

All about how, inspired by Cary Grant's character in "Holiday," I decided to "retire young and work old." Seriously. I did that: Do not try this at home. Did I mention I "retired" BEFORE getting a job?


Me, selling a cartoon!

On 60 Minutes! I appear a couple of times, and my sold cartoon also! Very exciting. My parents were very reassured. That's my editor, Bob Mankoff. Here's a link, in case there's trouble loading it on my page.



I won a writing contest

I won a writing contest at ToastingTheTown.com and read it for this fundraiser at the Nat Sherman Townhouse. Ten thousand dollars was raised for POTS!
