first presidential debate is going to be held at the University
of Mississippi, which hired me to do an illustration for the
event – here it is on their current "Ole Miss"
magazine cover. They will be using it for other stuff associated
with the debate too, probably the programs or a poster or something.
It would be fun if they would blow it up big as a backdrop (somehow
I doubt that they’ll do that, but thanks, Ole Miss!)
My book publisher (Que/Pearson Education)
liked it too, and it will also be the cover of our upcoming BIG
Book of Campaign 2008 Cartoons, which is slated to be in stores
in a month. Today, my loyal assistant, Stacey, and I did an urgent, last
minute edit to fit more Palin cartoons into the book.
