The New York Times Modern Love Podcast has been going for some months, but the first one featuring an illustration from the period when I illustrated the column is online today. In this week’s episode of the Modern Love Podcast, the actress Connie Britton (“Nashville,” “Friday Night Lights”) reads Elizabeth Fitzsimons’s 2007 essay, “My First Lesson in Motherhood,” about a woman’s almost immediate challenges with a daughter adopted from China.

I recently posted about the first illustrations I had done for Willamette Week since 1978, a pair of caricatures of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. I’ve just gotten another, bigger assignment from Willamette Week art director Julie Showers, doing illustrated portraits of their staff writers, which will run with their bylines in the paper. Here’s what one looks like on the Willamette Week website:
