The first publication to trust me with a blank space on the page was a newspaper. Despite meager experience and no familiarity with newspapering, I was asked to sketch a little pen-and-ink cartoon for page one. The best I could do was a clumsy piece of art, but deadlines are deadlines, and by midnight the first edition rolled off the presses. Displayed beneath the drawing was my name in a tiny attribution line, there to assign credit—as well as blame. And so I came to understand how the space for an illustration is bound with a responsibility to fill it with something worth looking at. I have never forgotten what a privilege that is to do.
