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.)

118. Mobil Corp. Advertisement

Click on the image and read the caption under Don's illustration. The kid has the solution to some of today's environmental concerns. Of course, it'll only work if you don't go anywhere. Above the cartoon there's the blurb that starts "An outlandish bargain." Prophetic, isn't it!

This Mobil ad appeared May 1, 1977. We don't have a record of where. However, the date is a Sunday and the size of the ad suggests a newspaper supplement. The column was titled "Observations" and started with an item about two guys building the first recreational vehicle in 1925.
