Another NYer reject. The cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, told me that this gag first appeared in the magazine in 1957! I was like, “my bad…”

One of my rejected New Yorker cartoons…but three of them made the cut! Whether or not that means I’ll be in the magazine remains to be seen.

I was included in the homie Damon Casarez’s photo essay for the New York Times Magazine, “Hi Mom, I’m Home!” It’s about young people who move back home with their parents as they struggle to manage financially.

I know it is probably a waste of time to address some comments I have read online about the article but I want to defend myself.

I went to the Rhode Island School of Design, one of the world’s best art schools and arguably the best in the US. I studied painting and now I am a published cartoonist. I have never served French fries or coffee or pushed paper at an office in order to pay my way through life. I have and will continue to earn money as an Artist because that’s who I am and what I am meant to be.

My professional and personal choices don’t fit the prescription for success in this country. But that doesn’t mean I won’t be laughing at all the disbelievers from the balcony of my Malibu beach house someday.

Saw the Swedish band Goat at Webster Hall last night. It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. This is one of the 7 members of the band.
