Can you believe The New Yorker passed on the above cartoon? Our Miami-based jazzman and cartoonist extraordinaire, Mick Stevens, continued to share his insights on a long career in The Mick Stevens Interview, Part 2. He also shared some cartoons that have never seen the light of day. Cartoon Companion is pleased to present, “It’s Always About Sisyphus, Never About the Rock”, another of our favorites. Part 2 of the Mick Stevens interview is still available in our blog posts. Oh, and one of Mick’s creations is the object of this week’s New Yorker Caption Contest, give it a try!
