Before I started Ernie I broke into the cartoon business drawing magazine cartoons. I published cartoons in almost all the American magazines that published cartoons during that early period, as well as some international magazines, starting in 1982 or thereabouts. Ernie was launched in February 1988.

There are three collections of those early cartoons, What’s New in Science, I Thought They’d Never Leave and I’ll Have the Suckling Pig. Many of the cartoons in the latter two collections had been published in an earlier book titled Guess Who Got Lucky.

First, the What’s New in Science book would appeal mostly to people who are in some way associated with some branch of the sciences. You might know that before I started drawing cartoons I was a PhD physicist. They haven’t taken way my degree yet, so I guess I still am.

In the early Guess Who Got Lucky book, I had mixed dignified cartoons and naughty ones. That wasn’t a good idea. So I filled the I Thought They’d Never Leave book with the milder cartoons, and I put the edgier cartoons in the I’ll Have the Suckling Pig book, although not all of the cartoons in the Pig are naughty by any means. Nevertheless, that book is not for young people. The cartoons are black and white. Here is a sample:

The paperback books are $10 and the Kindle versions are $5. Click on the covers for a link to Amazon in the U.S. If you’re elsewhere do a search on the title.
