The Wall Street Journal, May 28, 1999

This is one of my favorite gags. I was so proud when I came up with it. Even figuring out the math was fun.




National Lampoon, July 1984


natlamp0784.JPG I was certainly surprised when National Lampoon bought this one. I shouldn't have been, since it was right up their irreverent alley, so to speak.

Nevertheless, when I drew it, I was concerned about the controversial subject matter and decided to sign it only with ST. instead of my full name. Call me paranoiac, but I felt that if I used my obviously Jewish full name, it would bring out every religious crank and crackpot in the world. I had good reason to think this -- heck, I even got hate mail as a result of a harmless Santa cartoon that appeared in the Wall Street Journal! What I didn't realize at the time was that the famous New Yorker cartoonist and artist Saul Steinberg, who died a few years ago, also sometimes shortened his signature to ST., and it looked exactly like mine. So technically (but not practically, since our styles were so different) it was possible for someone to mistakenly think that it was a Steinberg. I hope I didn't cause him any hate mail problems.

And now I'd like to put in a little sidebar to all those "haters": Lighten up! This is strictly about humor! We have no hidden agendas! And yes, I have drawn cartoons making fun of Moses! In some small way, I think I understand what those Danish cartoonists are currently going through.




Medical Economics, August 24, 1981

My first published cartoon in Medical Economics -- still buying from me after 25 years.




The Florida Bar News, July 15, 2000

CAPTION: "I'd also like to remind you that when they rounded up the usual suspects, my client was not even one of those rounded up."

The Florida Bar News and Florida Bar Journal are two relatively low-paying cartoon venues, but I needed a place for all my National Law Journal rejects, and they fit the bill. Both of them bought a great number of my cartoons over the years, at least 125.




The National Law Journal, February 23, 1998

Another National Law Journal cartoon -- a nice combination of law and literature, I thought.




The National Law Journal, July 18, 1988

This is the first cartoon I sold to The National Law Journal. They publish one cartoon in each weekly issue, and they've used more than fifty of mine to date.




The National Law Journal, June 29, 1998





Management Review, May 1998





Management Review, December 1998

CAPTION: "Are we in complete agreement, then?"

Nothing much to say about this fine publication, except that I was sorry when it folded in 2000.
