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.)

14. American Red Cross Journal

At one time the American Red Cross published a magazine appropriately titled American Red Cross Journal. It included (at least some of the time as far as we know) a page called The Light Side. The tear sheet Don has with his cartoon is from the February 1969 issue and includes four cartoons by four different artists. Don's cartoon could still be sold today with two changes that really date it, not counting the gal's shirt which would now be skimpier, but is still possible. Notice the necklace on the guy (its style is very "sixties") and the aerial on the radio (without the aerial what the guy is holding looks suspiciously like a cartoon BlackBerry). Of course for today, Don should add headphones. Think about this: The cords are gone from our telephones and added to our radios. Aren't the "wire manufacturers" lucky?
