What happens when a cartoonist is mugged? The cartoonist draws a cartoon about it.
Signe Wilkinson, editorial cartoonist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and a syndicated comic strip creator, was mugged in her Philly neighborhood on Sunday night. She was unharmed.
Held up at gunpoint on Sunday evening AT 7 PM in my nice, safe neighborhood, the little perp made off with my 'purse' which was a canvas bag filled with pens, paper, and sketches for my comic strip, "Family Tree". It put my schedule back but warmed my heart that I've given him the tools that could change his life. Of course, learning to use the pens takes longer than learning to shoot a gun.
