Next Generation Leadership

business cartoon

Often cartoons come to me in roundabout ways. Snippets overheard, phrases popping out, just plain daydreaming. . .

But this cartoon had a more pedestrian birth. A large business publication sent out a letter that it was looking for cartoons on “next generation leadership” for an upcoming issue.

Normally I would dig into my inventory and send something appropriate, but this was so specific and narrow, and it had been so long since I’d sold them, that I took a chance and created some tightly targeted cartoons.

This is by far the nerdiest of the bunch, and wasn’t purchased, but when it finally sold years later I felt a little cartoon weight off of my shoulders.
