Another Cartoon That Would Be Rejected By The New Yorker If I Could Draw Well Enough To Make Submitting It To Them Worthwhile In The First Place

A woman walking the streets of London, wrapped in a slightly tattered shawl. One particularly long loose thread trails in the air behind her. And what’s this? Horror! A sinister man, his face hidden by the broad brim of his hat, his form lost in an inky cloak save for one ebony-clad arm ending in a black leather glove – a glove reaching out to grasp the trailing thread!

    well, for whatever it’s worth, i think it’s great!

  2. AnotherCoward says:

    That’s a very good concept!

    FTR, I love the easter island ‘toons.

  3. Matthew Lickona says:

    Thanks much. What I’d reallly like to do is cartoon…

  4. AnotherCoward says:

    Then, I think you should, editor/publisher willing, preface the beginning of each chapter for the next book with a cartoon.

  5. antiaphrodite says:

    we’ll pray about it, then.

  6. Jonathan Potter says:

    I love the Easter Island series, too. And this one would surely be New Yorker worthy if you caught them on the right day. The idea is more important than the draftsmanship.
