A Video Chat About my Cartoons

My friend Linda Crane, a charming and detail-oriented realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach and the Trident Group, has a weekly chat with interesting people in the area, and whether they work in the real estate industry or not she brings along her knowledge and personality to make it a fun exchange.

Linda asked if I’d talk with her a bit about my cartooning, especially selling cartoons to the New Yorker magazine, so we pulled a couple chairs up to the old zoom box and had a conversation.

I tell Linda how I became interested in cartooning and what it’s like submitting sketches to the New Yorker in the video of our chat, below. Linda has more of these fun discussions on her Youtube channel – I invite you to check it out after you listen here.

At the end of our talk I mention the choral group Cantus Novus and their auction in which one of my framed, original New Yorker cartoon drawings will be sold. Cantus Novus’ concert We Rise Again is online today, Friday May 21 starting at 8:00 PM, on their Facebook page. Their online fundraising auction will start at the conclusion of the concert, at approximately 9 pm, and Pat’s New Yorker cartoon is available for bids HERE.  The auction will continue for 2 weeks after the concert, and all proceeds benefit this excellent non-profit choir.

  1. Indeed Pat . . .”The fact that you exist.” Amen! Just your smiling reassuring affect is a blessing to this crazy world 🙂

  2. This was so much fun; cheered me up tons: Have been ill for several days. Home and improving, but slow going. Link for concert, pretty please?

    • Oh dear, prayers for your full recovery, Nancy! Of course, some choral music may help – if you go to the Cantus Novus Youtube page tonight at 8 ( or anytime after, they will keep it up there indefinitely for anyone to watch) which is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeoJBWwXBtZvBZ-a-cVxLSw – you will see a box titled “We Rise Again” – that is what you click on to watch & listen to the concert. Many well wishes to you, dear friend.

      • Much love and huge thanks! Looking forward to this, Pat ❤ to you and George!
