How to Swim
Have I mentioned how much I admire Clay Bennett's cartoons? Each one is like a little masterpiece... simple and powerful visual images without a lot of words (unlike, say, my cartoons). For those of you not in the know, Clay won the Pulitzer for Editorial Cartooning this year, and is also a really nice guy (I got to meet him at a special cartoonist's dinner/talk here at Harvard). Anyway, check out this cartoon he did recently on so-called welfare reform. And while you're at it, visit cartoonist Cindy Procious (who happens to be Clay's wife) who is also really talented and friendly and was very encouraging to me as a young woman trying to make it in the almost entirely male world of editorial cartooning.
