New video over at the Washington Post

I think the last time the Washington Post put together a video of me working was in 2011… here’s a link to the just released latest one:

Ann’s got a Washington Post blog page!

I’m really excited that the Washington Post has created a blog page for me.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to be writing much (since I’m not much of a writer) but what I am going to be doing is posting cartoon gifs, stills, and sketches in addition to the current animated videos.  This new format will give me more creative flexibility and the ability to use whatever medium best suits my ideas.

Jeff Bezos of Amazon buys The Washington Post

WPost5thFloorI work from home so I only go into the actual Washington Post building about once a month to meet with my editor and touch base.  Since it was such a beautiful day, Jim suggested we talk over coffee at the corner Starbucks.  As we waited for the elevator, groups of WPost employees were making their way down to a company wide meeting where everyone expected the announcement of the location of their new offices to be made (there were plans for months to sell the iconic 15th Street building).  Right as we sat down Jim received a text and said something like “Holy sh**!  The Washington Post was just bought by Jeff Bezos!”  I thought he was kidding at first but as soon as I started scrolling my twitter feed, I could see it was true.  Amazingly, no one saw this coming- it seemed like everyone at the WPost was caught by surprise and genuinely shocked.

More to come….

SCOTUS update

We’re down to the last week of the Supreme Court’s 2012 term and still no opinions on gay marriage,  affirmative action, and voting rights.  SCOTUSblog will begin live blogging Monday at 9am and expect opinions to start coming in at 10am. As I mentioned before, I’ll be doing live sketches of the action outside of the Court so check back here and at the Washington Post.     GayCouple
