He also drew political cartoons, illustrated children's books, and was one of the frequent artists for Life magazine wit his 'Aesop to Date' series, among other things. Sullivant's drawings also appeared in periodicals like Puck, Harper's Weekly and Texas Siftings. He moved from Life to Judge magazine in the early 1900s, and also became a political cartoonist for the papers of William Randolph Hearst until 1907. He returned to Life magazine in 1911 and remained a contributor until his death in 1926. Sullivant's animal illustrations were a strong influence on J.R. Bray, Nancy Beiman, Walt Disney, Walt Kelly and Jim Woodring.
