I did this little comic stripe for the New York Times Opinionator Private Lives - a column on personal memoirs. (For y’all international folks, the comic should be read from left to right, up to down. )
The essay I worked on is about a Chinese-American woman meeting her grandma, who happens to live in the same city all along, for the first time in a very long time. ”My grandmother has Alzheimer’s disease. But in a lot of ways, she made us forget each other a long time ago.” It’s a bit melancholy but beautiful. It runs in the online blog and today’s Sunday Paper.
Frankly I am not as aquatinted with comic as with illustration, so there are a lot more to be learnt and improved. But I really enjoy this fun challenges and love how the New York Times would occasionally throw me a curve ball or two. Being put out of my comfort zone keeps me focus and excited.
Big thanks to AD Alexandra for the interesting assignment, as always!
