TED Talk: New Yorker Cartoonist Amy Hwang

In 2018, New Yorker cartoonist Amy Hwang decided to leave her architecture job to pursue freelance cartooning full-time. Using her own cartoons and drawings, she explains the thought processes she used to help her reach this decision. Amy Hwang’s cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker since 2010. Born and raised in Texas, Amy moved to New York to study architecture at Barnard College where she started drawing cartoons for the Columbia Daily Spectator. She concurrently worked in architecture jobs and worked as a cartoonist until 2018 when she made the decision to focus on cartoons full-time. She lives in Scarsdale with her daughter. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
