Henry Payne Cartoon Cover Ilustrations

Before he went on to wider renown as a political cartoonist, Henry Payne illustrated several Ivy League football program covers, including these two humorous Princeton programs in 1984 and 1985. Payne is a 1984 graduate of Princeton.

Payne is an editorial cartoonist for the Detroit News and also has illustrated for the Charleston (WV) Daily Mail, Scripps Howard News Service, the National Review and the Weekly Standard. His work is syndicated by United Media, thus his cartoons receive wide distribution.

One of our favorite Payne works is his 1983 cover of a Cornell game against Harvard where is does an Ivy Leaguer’s take off on the famous New Yorker’s ‘view of the world’ cartoon:

    The Cornell program cover was also a Princeton cover. Cornell also used the October 27th Princeton/Harvard illustration pictured above for the cover of their September 22nd game against Princeton.
