1980's

Graphic Arts Monthly, May 1986







The Wall Street Journal, 1982


Sorry to say, I don't have the exact date this cartoon was printed in The Wall Street Journal. The above image was taken from the book "Can Board Chairmen Get Measles? -- Thirty years of great cartoons from The Wall Street Journal" edited by Charles Preston and published in 1982 by Crown Publishers, Inc.

Five other cartoons of mine are included in that book, but the others have all been archived here by publication date.






Boardroom Lists, November 1985


Another award-winning advertisement from Boardroom. It appeared in several different trade magazines, and was targeted to the direct mail industry.

Boardroom Lists, March 1985


"More lists" . . . ? Well, this would refer to more mailing lists, of course, since this is another Boardroom gag targeted for the direct mail industry.

Boardroom Lists, 1984


Another gag targeted for the direct-mail-oriented audience of Boardroom Lists.






Boardroom Lists, 1984


Another gag targeted strictly for the Direct Mail industry. And another cartoon that I shared my by-line with Boardroom Lists editor Brian Kurtz, since he supplied the gag and the wording for the caption. I can just about imagine what "continuation usage" means in the industry, but don't ask me to explain it.

Boardroom Lists, March 1986


One of the ECHO Award-winning ads that I mentioned before. These ads appeared in many Direct Mail-oriented publications. The gag was slanted strictly to the Direct Mail trade, and absolutely wouldn't make sense to anyone else. The caption was carefully worked over (until it was perfect) by Brian Kurtz, the editor of Boardroom Lists. I assume Brian also wrote the advertising copy.
