Wish me luck…

I’ve decided to start submitting cartoons on a regular basis to The New Yorker. This is the pinnacle of the cartooning world as far as I’m concerned and would definitely be a feather in my cap. Of course every other cartoonist would like to be published there, too, so I’m competing against hundreds upon hundreds of cartoons. Still, nothing ventured…

The New Yorker only accepts previously unpublished work (even on a blog) so that means I’ll have to hold (what I consider to be) good work back from this site until it has been either accepted or dismissed by the magazine. This will probably create a new reoccurring feature: Whiteouts rejected by The New Yorker!

First cartoon was sent in last night…wish me luck.


  1. Great news, Paul, and GOOD LUCK! This demonstrates the need to keep pushing forward in the face of adversity and great odds. The adage “Nothing ventured, nothing gained,” is most appropriate.
