Alternatives Jounal, where my strip Footprint in Mouth appears every two months, has undertaken a complete rebranding. It is now called AJ and aims to bring environmental awareness to the forefront of Canadian newsstands.
As part of the redesign, the editors asked that I switch to a single panel format for my cartoon. They felt that there was too much reading (and fact checking!) involved in the previous format. While in the past, I have preferred a comic strip format, I also welcome the challenge of distilling my satire to a single hit.
My new single panel cartoon has no title, but its loose mandate is “giving animals a voice.” Talking humans will still make cameo appearances, especially when they insert their foot firmly in their mouths.
