New Cartoon at Women's eNews:
The Real Security Moms
For the rest of this month, in addition to my regular cartoons for the Boston Phoenix and Bay Windows, I'm going to be filling in for Pultizer-prize-winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes at Women's eNews. This is a huge honor, not the least because the other substitute for Ann is going to be one of my political cartooning idols, Kirk Anderson. Here's the announcement from Women's eNews:
Our prize-winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes is taking a three-month leave from Women's eNews, starting today October 6. We hate to lose her, if even for a little while, but it was wonderful to have a chance to ask some of the other top political cartoonists if they would mind filling in for a little while.
We pored over portfolios and selected two whose drawings were funny while they told the story and whose viewpoints were politically acute. Mikhaela B. Reid will fill in for Telnaes during October.
Reid is a 24-year-old political cartoonist whose work appears in the Boston Phoenix, Bay Windows, Ms., In These Times, and the Funny Times, among other publications. She was born and raised in Lowell, Mass., and attended Harvard College, where she studied social anthropology and photography. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her cat Riley.
Next month, Kirk Anderson--yes a man!--will provide us will some chuckles during the election aftermath and the beginning of the holiday season. Anderson is a 15-year veteran editorial cartoonist, with 8 of those years at the St. Paul Pioneer Press. His work has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, and hundreds of other newspapers and magazines, including Ms. The two will share December's slots.
We hope Telnaes enjoys her break, await her return and are thankful two such talents have agreed to provide Commentoons.
Of course, this also means I'll have even less time to blog, I'm afraid. But cartooning really has to take priority.
