I was interviewed by Ching-In Chen for an article about Indian-themed comics, which is out now in the new issue of Hyphen Magazine. I haven't seen it yet, but hopefully they were able to edit down my rambling answers into something a little more pithy. I don't think they included any illustrations from me (I couldn't really decide what to send them in time), but it's a thought-provoking topic and there are some other interviews with excellent artists, so I can't wait to see. According to their website:
Hyphen is a magazine about Asian America for the culturally and politically savvy. Built around a clarity of image, word and social awareness, Hyphen takes form from the artists, thinkers and creators who are shaping a new multiethnic generation.
Yes! I think they have an excellent blog as well.
I won't be able to make it to the "Who Is Mr. Brown" show (They'll be exhibiting the piece I showed you in my last post), but here is the info for anyone who would like to attend:
