This week’s episode features special guest, Sarah Akinterinwa who is an author, illustrator, and New York Magazine cartoonist. In this episode, we talk about relationships, art, body image struggles, and loving where you are at in life.
In 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and having recently been made redundant, she created the comic “Oyin and Kojo”, showcasing humorous single panel cartoons of a black-British couple’s everyday life. Two months later, the cartoon editor of The New Yorker magazine discovered her work and asked her to become a contributor. It was from then on that she became a cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine, and later became a full-time artist, creating comic, editorial cartoons and illustrations, and delivering artist workshops.
