Cricket is a cartoonist who has been drawing comics for twenty years only to discard them when her hands got too full. Recently, in a bargain that is so Faustian it is unclear which one of us is the devil, I have convinced her to draw a comic a day and give them to me instead of throwing them in the trash. Subsequently, I place them on the internet. She also lives in New York City.
