Recent Wall Street Journal Cartoon



Here's a recent drawing in the November 21, 2007 Wall Street Journal. When I drew this a few weeks ago, I was POSITIVE the New Yorker would buy it . . . I KNOW they liked it and I KNOW the magazine got cheated by not publishing it . . It's timely, It BELONGS in the magazine . . ask anyone who knows anything about New Yorker cartoons . . ask ANY New Yorker cartoonist . . the overwhelming majority would agree . . It's sometimes HARD to be humble . . I'm TIRED of being right . .

The funny thing, I immediately sent it to The Wall Street Journal and THEY GRABBED IT ! I picked up another $100.00 when I BET a cartoonist friend of mine that The Journal would buy it . . He bet and he lost . . Like I said, I'm TIRED OF BEING RIGHT. It was fun for a while, it's no fun any more.

This cartoon is available as an 8 1/2 x 11 inch cartoon print ( with a wet signature ) matted and framed under glass, black frame. for $82.00. ( inclues S&H )

This makes over 19,500 cartoons REJECTED by The New Yorker in my lifetime. If they ever DID buy one, I'd probably have a heart-attack ! I can't win either way !

How about some comments ? Keep them cogent and civil. Let's have a New Yorker Cartoon DIALOGUE !

I have another idea . . LET'S PUT ON A SHOW ! !

Thanks for the kind words, Don . . I even got a suggestion ( from a New Yorker artist ) to send the cartoons and tell them that I'm a 29 year-old gay cartoonist from South Africa, a left-handed Albino ( with red hair, and part in the middle ) The reason being that, according to a recent Bob Mankoff interview by Diffee in the Huffington Post Blog. . . that Mankoff is looking for more diversity . . If I do it, I've already got the perfect name: PETER PLUM ! Look for America's next great cartoonist, Peter Plum !

Peter Plum is real, Peter Plum is coming!
