What I Remember (12): Art & Cartoons
George liked to draw – he drew a number of children's books for his sons in the early 1960s – and he loved The New Yorker. Although they never accepted his commissions, the editors at the magazine were frequent recipients of his cartoons, like the puzzling one pictured below, which George submitted in the 1950s. Perhaps a caption explained it. Or perhaps not.
When the cartoon strip presented below was found among George's papers during his last move, he had no memory of what it was all about. It seems to be a parody of a movie ad, possibly The Razor's Edge, with wacky names given to outrageous characters. Unfortunately, it was water-damaged and some of the images and words are obscured.
