Just went live! An article in comics on what it’s like to campaign for governor in Vermont, by myself and James Sturm for Slate Magazine. James and I followed Matt Dunne on his last day on the campaign trail on Monday, August 23rd, from 5:30 am until about 9:30pm. All day Tuesday was spent working on compiling the piece: James wrote the story, I did the drawings, and together with Keny Widjaja we completed all the production and color completed by early Wednesday morning (today). I loved doing the work and hope to get to do more projects like it in the future! The full gallery of images will be posted in a couple of months. In the meantime, check out the article here.
James Sturm and I covered one day’s worth of Vermont’s Democratic Gubernatorial Primary campaigning with Matt Dunne as cartoonist reporters for Slate Magazine! Keep an eye out for our final comic to be published on Wednesday on the events of today. Good luck to Matt Dunne and to the other four candidates going head to head tomorrow on the final countdown to election. And remember Vermont: GET OUT AND VOTE IN YOUR PRIMARY!
On the road, a misty beautiful morning on 89 North:

Many thanks to the Dunne campaign for letting us joining the day’s events!
