Yet more cool cartoonists who make my day + people using my cartoons for a good cause
I hope you all read Keith Knight's strip the K Chronicles and his Africana.com Th(ink) cartoons every week, cause if you don't you're missing out. Anyway I sent Keith a big fan letter the other day and was quite surprised to find he had actually already seen my cartoons and liked them. I quote:
good gawd, woman!! i love your cartoons!! i've admired them from afar. i know i've seen at least one in the funny times and one in the phoenix when i was visiting in september.
It is these kinds of emails that get me through those days when I start to think about the state this country is in and I just want to pull the blanket over my head and hope it all goes away.
Cartoons used for good causes
It also makes me really happy to hear that my cartoons are being used to promote good causes (in which case I am happy to provide high-res-versions free of charge, just email me first). As I mentioned before, Friday was the API ForCE (Asians and Pacific Islanders for Community Empowerment) National Day of Action Against Deportation. The buttons above, printed in both English and Khmer, use one of the images from my cartoon "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor... (sort of)" (regarding the deportation of Cambodian refugees).
