My career as a magazine cartoonist began in 1966, at the age of eight when I swiped a
copy of the book Thurber & Company from my brother," says Michael Shaw. "I am now a copywriter for Lands End, which is a fine and noble profession. Unfortunately the doodle bug has never left me. Sometime in early 1998 I decided that before the end of this century, I would sell a cartoon to The New Yorker or implode in the attempt." Michael's story about his efforts to appear in the magazine runs in Rosebud 18, along with a collection of his cartoons. His first New Yorker cartoon was printed in the Dec. 27, 1999 issue.
