My favorite cartoonists say nice things about me, updated
First, I'd just like to note that I've probably read every one of Alison Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For book collections like a gazillion times (well, more like 20 times each, but whatever). That might give you an idea of what Alison's praise means to me.
"Mikhaela Reid's cartoons are right *$%@ing on."
--Alison Bechdel, "Dykes to Watch Out For"
"Mikhaela Reid has what every great editorial cartoonist needs most - passion. Her work is insightful, inventive, and unambiguous. She is way too good to be so young."
--Clay Bennett, Editorial Cartoonist, The Christian Science Monitor
"Mikhaela Reid rocks!! She's where i steal most of my ideas from!!"
--Keith Knight ("the K Chronicles", "(th)ink")
"Mikhaela Reid is easily the best and brightest new editorial cartoonist since, well, me."
Also, Tom Tomorrow gets a big thank you for mentioning me in his blog, as do all the nice people who visited me as a result. You all rock and you've totally made me feel that cartooning is worth doing on top of my day job, despite the lost sleep and the fact that I'm still spending more money on art supplies and computer equipment than I've actually earned cartooning. So I'm hugely grateful.
