I’ve submitted three drawings to The New Yorker thus far and all three appear to be languishing in “cartoon purgatory.” I’ve gotten notification that they have been received but no official “accept” or “reject.”
I got the idea for the cartoon above about three days AFTER the winter solstice last year, so I’ve been sitting on it for many months. I thought this was a funny idea and sent it to The New Yorker way back in mid-October, thinking they might be interested in it for a December run.
In retrospect, they probably need far longer lead time than that…just to sort through the thousands of submissions they receive.
Anyway, since I haven’t heard anything and since today is the winter solstice…enjoy!
