My New Yorker Cartoon Original Drawing Donated for Auction

In case you missed it in my video interview with realtor Linda Crane, I mentioned that I have donated the framed original art of my recently published New Yorker cartoon to the auction supporting the wonderful choral group Cantus Novus.

This original signed cartoon “Student-Teacher Conference” appeared in the May 10, 2021 issue of the New Yorker. I drew this cartoon by hand in prisma pencil and ink wash on illustration board, and on the back of the 13″ x13″ frame I’ve attached the printed page of the cartoon from the New Yorker in a plastic sleeve.

I think the topic of the gag cartoon would give a laugh to any teacher, principal or school staff member who receives it as a gift!

Bidding is open to the public until June 4, so if you are interested in owning an original drawing that was published in the New Yorker, you can easily register to place a bid. My cartoon is listed HERE and you can take a look at a lot of other auction items, including some terrific vacations, on the site HERE. All proceeds go to help fund the extraordinary music created by this 40-voice Bucks County choir.

My New Scout Notecards “Trustworthy”

I’m adding a new illustrated notecard to the Scouting items I have in my Etsy store – while I have several popular Eagle Scout cards, this one is an all-occasion card. I drew these cheery scouts alongside the goals of the Scout Law – to be Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent – to create a notecard that can be used for any occasion, whether to celebrate a rank advancement or merit badge, offer words of encouragement or to thank a mentor, scoutmaster or fellow scout. I first drew this when my son was rising through the ranks toward Eagle Scout, to celebrate the Scout Law in a fun visual way. The notecards make a great gift for a Scout leader too. The cards are blank inside, and all the ordering info is here on my Etsy page.

My artwork is printed in black and white on sturdy card stock, invitation-size, which is 4.25″ wide and 5.5″ high, 8 cards to a box and 8 white envelopes are included. If mailed, the card requires standard first-class postage. As with all my other cards, the cardstock is made from partially recycled paper and the cards are printed in the USA.

If you want to order some and live in the Central Bucks County area, and would like to avoid the shipping charges, please don’t click on the ‘Buy’ button, instead just email me through Etsy, or here on my website Contact page, to see if we can arrange for you to pick up the card in person.

If you want to have a pre-printed message printed on the inside of your cards, or for discounts on quantities greater than 24 cards, just contact me to inquire about pricing.
