Don has sold a LOT of cartoons in his career. Each numbered cartoon or illustration on the left side of this Blog is from a DIFFERENT magazine, newspaper, etc. Let's see if we can find out the total number of publications (places) where Don's work has appeared . . . . . (An unnumbered posting is a duplicate publication.)

11. Don's first sale

Liberty was the first magazine to print an Orehek cartoon. That was in 1949. (Ohmygawd, that's 60 years ago.) Notice how Don's style has changed since then, and so has his signature! For a quick comparison, look in the right column of this blog for a very recent cartoon: © Playboy 2009.

Note: Playboy retains all reprint rights, but Don can sell the original artwork. Send him an e-mail if you are interested.
