Lee Lorenz: In Need of Elizabeth Arden

Someone liked this published color cartoon by Lee Lorenz well enough to frame it. Very possibly it was used as an advertisement given the prominence of the brand. The framed cartoon print was sold on eBay in 2017.

"Help!"

Note:  I'm hoping someone can tell me when and where this appeared in print.

My Entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #623

Let's see if my entry in The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest #623 for July 9, 2018 will fly. The drawing is by Joe Dator.

"The park doesn't allow them, period."



Note:  Last time around, cartoonist P. C. Vey fired up the barbecue in a subway car. My caption was underdone. Grab a paper plate and head for Contest #622.

Let's go fly a kite! And check out my previous posts on Joe Dator.

Edward Koren: The Fund Industry Cleans House

An original color illustration by Edward Koren shows the mutual fund industry cleaning house. That FT up in the pediment may indicate that the art was created for the Financial Times. Of note, the illustration appears on the website of Riley Illustration, the agency that represents Mr. Koren.

Edward Koren: Age Appropriate?

Who among us hasn't commented on a particular couple's age difference? New Yorker cartoonist Edward Koren does the math:

"How appropriate is that—she's a hundred and twenty years his junior."
