Follow That Cartoon (Part 5)

Welcome back to Follow That Cartoon! A series of entries in which I track the creation, submissions, and, hopefully, the sale of this cartoon:


Got my first “no thanks” from the cartoon editor for Reader’s Digest.


The good news is I have a number of others being held for the next big meeting, but #5922 isn’t among them.

Oh well, off to the next market. I’ll letcha know when I send it out again.

(BTW, while looking this one up in my database, I couldn’t help but notice its similarity to this cartoon. Apparently I’m already plagiarizing myself.)

(Another BTW, you can follow the rest of the entries starting with this previous one.)

  1. This is an interesting idea! And I hope the cartoon sells before too long.

    Hey, that's a nice number of holds you got from RD.

    Do you have a set plan for where this goes next? I mean, would it be for instance, Good Housekeeping, First, Women's World — in that order? I'm just wondering since I tend to send my own cartoon batches to markets in the above order — unless the baby's in a business suit or something, then it would go to some of the business mag markets.

  2. I'd considered sending it to HBR next, but then probably Good Housekeeping. I think Barron's and Forbes are possibilities; they publish some other-than-business types of stuff.

    Then of course there's Baby Auto Mechanic Weekly, but I dunno if they'd be into this one.

  3. Mike, congratulations on the RD holds! It's been a while, so did you hear from Norman? I'm trying to understand how long it takes for final selection by RD.

  4. Hey there…

    I just heard about the meeting results, but it varies.

    Any more I just sorta send stuff out and wait to hear. I gave up trying to understand meeting scheudles at any magazine some time ago.
