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.)

185. The Official FDNY Fire Safety Activity Coloring Book

This is an unusual cartooning job Don did in 1998. The page here is one of 12, plus the cover, all about fire safety. Don drew it all including the friendly dalmatian wearing a fire helmet. On the front cover he says, "Hi, I'm Your Friend, HOT DOG, The Fire Safety Dog." The back cover is a certificate to be made out to a "Junior Firefighter" who has learned the rules of fire safety and prevention. It is signed by Rudulph W. Giuliani, New York City Mayor, and Thomas Von Essen, Fire Commissioner.

Be sure to notice Don's signature on this page, below the ambulance behind the rear tire.
