Walrus December Cover


“…They wanted me to illustrate the words “We’re Sorry” relating to a story about the Canadian propensity to apologize, and the troubles that ensue from public apologies for past national crimes. I had hoped to trick them into letting me draw snakes, but just as I was relishing the prospect of a triumphant coup in getting snakes on the cover of a magazine, they nixed that idea. Disappointed but not surprised, I switched to string … or the entanglement of yarn. I don’t think Brian thought I was serious when I suggested a fluffy kitten to go with it, but I was! Alas, no snakes, no kittens.”
