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.)

58. Fling, 1969

Thank you Playtex! Don never heard from the bra manufacturer about this cartoon, but maybe it's just as well!
Be sure to notice the guy on the right. Don did and still does use "his face" in cartoons when he can. Sometimes he's lurking in a crowd, à la Alfred Hitchcock. In case you can't relate the guy in the cartoon with the "more mature" Don in his "About Me" picture, we are adding (see right column) a picture taken in 1968 of Don and son Errol.
Back to Fling. For a while (1968-69) Don did a full-page, color feature for the magazine called "Hippey". She was an archetypal hippy believing in everything that role espoused. She wore herself out quickly, but had fun doing it.
Fling was put out by Relim Publishing Co., Chicago.
