There is life beyond the cubicle


One of the best things about working in a newsroom is certainly not the office furniture but the incredibly talented people who inhabit these spaces: writers, editors, art directors, photographers, artists... I always feel smarter and more creative just by being around them. Unfortunately, there's going to be less creativity in the air in my department because two top-notch artists are leaving to pursue other opportunities. I did this drawing for one of them, Boo, who is going to rock out the arts, crafts and fashion scene with her heavy metal quilts. Rock on Boo!
Lo mejor de trabajar en la redacción de un periódico está claro que no es el mobiliario sino la gente con tanto talento que habita estos espacios: redactores, editores, directores de arte, fotógrafos, ilustradores... Sólo por estar cerca de ellos yo me siento más inteligente y creativo. Pero por desgracia, la creatividad en mi departamento va a dar un bajón con la marcha de dos artistas de primera que emprenden nuevas aventuras profesionales. Este apunte lo hice para una de ellas, Boo, que va a revolucionar el mundo de los textiles y la moda con sus colchas heavy metal. Mucho ánimo Boo!
