From The Archive: A Ross Perot New Yorker Cartoon; Today’s New Yorker Daily Cartoon & Cartoonist; The Village Voice & MAD

I haven’t done a whole lot of (obviously) political cartoons over the years. A Supreme Court drawing in the very early 1980s and a Bill Clinton drawing in the early 1990s come readily to mind.  Ross Perot, the two-time Presidential candidate who died today at age 89, was a humor magnet. Like so many other of the magazine’s cartoonists ( including Lee Lorenz, Liza Donnelly, James Stevenson, Peter Steiner, Arnie Levin, Mick Stevens, Dana Fradon, J.B. Handelsman, and Jack Ziegler) I couldn’t resist having a graphic go at him. The below appeared in The New Yorker issue of May 27, 1996.

How Much Is That Doggie In The New Yorker Cartoon? $8.00

How much is that doggie in The New Yorker cartoon? Apparently, it’s 8 dollars.  In a sign-of-the-times first, a New Yorker contributor is publicly selling space in his upcoming New Yorker cartoon. Paul Karasik, whose July 4th Facebook post appears below, has raffled off a piece of his creation for cash. Mr. Karasik sold the drawing just a few weeks ago (the drawing has yet to appear in the magazine).  I know, I know, you’re wondering when I’ll say something “clever” like Mr. Karasik has gone to the dogs…
