Tin House

Sometime last winter, I was commissioned by Harper’s magazine to do a page for a theme section they were planning, on how the Bush administration’s time in office would be taught to future generations of schoolchildren. My piece was accepted but for whatever reason the section was killed, leaving me with an orphaned cartoon page. It was too long to recycle into the weekly strip, and I guess too specifically focused for the other shortlist clients that might run a piece of mine on occasion, so for awhile it was looking like something that might never find a print home (and I’m still old school enough to care about things like that). But then someone from Tin House magazine sent me an email, and they were wondering if maybe I had anything that hadn’t been published yet, that they might use in their upcoming comics and graphics issue. Happily for both of us, I did and they did and you can read more about the issue here.
