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.)

34. Laff Time

Here's another cover Don did for Crestwood Publishing, also 1969. This magazine measures 5-5/8 x 6-1/4 inches as do Crestwood's other joke mags: Army Laughs, Army Fun and Broadway Laughs. Cartoons were printed full page and shared their pages with jokes, true oddities, an occasional short-short story, and a few ads, mostly for other magazines.

Back to Army Laughs: In the right column is a feature for which Don did the artwork. The title "Al Fong Spong say. . ." is obviously a take-off on Confucius, the Chinese thinker and social philosopher. Like Confucius Al Spong was a real person; he wrote the gag lines.
