Garden Variety Hand Held

While looking for food cartoons in my inventory–a friend is starting a food magazine–I ran across this one. I did it last summer and since I figure a lot of people are either drinking beer, grilling, or working in their gardens this weekend, I would post it today.

Sometimes I do cartoons that are just silly and make no sense. I feel this falls into that category. Doing drawings like this keeps my brain flexible–I don’t want to get too serious with my humor, nor too predictable. I actually find these type of ideas hard to do– I often can’t get my brain go there. But I try.  And you never know what The New Yorker will buy. Or not.

    Yes, Liza. This one threw me. Sideways. Off in a different direction. And that’s the reason I loved it. It was a surprise in my morning! “What will she think of next?” I ask myself. I am an avid garden. Any information on when cell phones are ripe enough for harvesting?

  2. Karen, Thanks! I should do these kind more often, shake everyone (myself included) up! The only thing I garden is basil for pesto, and having never grown cell phone, I can’t tell you. But I think you’ll be able to tell when it’s ripe. It’s sort of a greyish black.

    Now look at what you’ve gone and done, Liza – you’ve opened
    up a whole can of organic worms! (Cartoonists being “silly”…
    the nerve!) Does anyone out there have a good recipe for
    cell phone? I have no idea what herbs to pair with it.

    PS: Liza Donnelly cartoons in 2 of the last 3 issues of the
    New Yorker – that’s more like it! An issue is not “complete” without
    one. They (the New Yorker) need to come to terms with this fact.

    How could I forget?! Most importantly, what WINE do you
    serve with cell phone?
