Bought and Paid For, But Never Published. The Wall Street Journal, 1989

One more cartoon that The Wall Street Journal bought and paid for, but to my knowledge, never published. I figure they were waiting to schedule it to appear during the height of a bear market, but then it got lost in the shuffle. Or it could have been a dozen other reasons.

Stitches, 2003

Another cartoon that appeared in Stitches, a now-defunct Canadian medical-oriented publication. I don't have a copy of the printed cartoon, so this is a duplicate of the original, with a hand-written caption.

Stitches, 2000

"Stitches" was a Canadian medical humor publication, offering humor and lifestyle articles for physicians. Its editorial office was in Newmarket and, later, Aurora, Ontario. I sold a few cartoons to Stitches in the early 2000's, but never actually saw a single copy of the magazine, much less any of my cartoons in print (could never get them to send me tearsheets). According to my records, the publication folded in 2007.

I'll be posting my own copies of the cartoons that were purchased by Stitches, with the year in which they were bought, and with my own handwritten captions. Above is the first one, from the year 2000.

Bought and Paid For . . . But Never Published. The Wall Street Journal, 1992

One thing I could never understand is why a publication would buy and pay for a cartoon of mine and then, for no apparent reason, never publish it. That has happened to me several times in the more than 50 years that I've been in this business, and even The Wall Street Journal has been guilty of this minor transgression . . . not just once, but several times.

The above drawing, for example, was bought and paid for by The Wall Street Journal in 1992, but as far as I can tell, has never made it into print.

The original drawing was eventually returned to me (The Wall Street Journal has always been very efficient about returning original art). Just one of life's mysteries, I guess. More examples will follow, as I get around to posting them.
