John Moe is a humor writer from Seattle and senior reporter for NPR's show Weekend America who also contributes to the paper's features section. I illustrated his Seafair story a while back and just created the man-turned-teenager above for this article where he describes spending a day living like a 14-year-old as he reflects about getting older. Pretty funny stuff. A must read if you are, like me, getting close to 40.
John Moe es un escritor humorista de Seattle (trabaja en el programa Weekend America de NPR) que también colabora en la sección de cultura del periódico. Ilustré recientemente su artículo sobre Seafair y esta semana creé este hombre-adolescente para este artículo en el que cuenta su experiencia de pasar un día como si tuviera 14 años y reflexiona sobre hacerse mayor. Muy divertido. Si ya te vas acercando a los 40, como yo, el artículo es de lectura obligada.

  2. That article was so funny! Your drawings are wonderful, you really have a knack of making characters, your 14 yo 40 yo seems really likeable!
