(Above cover to Funny Times by David Horsey.)
I have a cartoon in this month's Funny Times.
To me, this is a very old cartoon. I drew it a long time ago, with a dip pen and an ink wash. I believe it first appeared in print in The New York Daily News in 2002. So, to me, this all looks like something that I would draw very differently now. My guess is that I sent a copy of it to FT soon after its first appearance.
I know that FT will file away cartoons for a long time under certain subject headings. Then, they will have them all appear in a thematically similar layout. In this case, a New York-centric column by Lenore Skenazy. I didn't know that this little cartoon was saved all those years in a Cleveland Heights file drawer. (Cleveland Heights is where The Funny Times is from.)
Anyway, nice to see it in print and nice to know it's a perennial kinda cartoon. That's the kind of cartoon that you want: one that gets bought routinely for a a variety of clients thru the years.
