Memorable Encounters, Round One

Comics about meeting people we admire

Hi, I’m Edith, and this is a newsletter with links and comics. I’d love to know what you think; please feel free to reply to this email!

Hello! A couple weeks ago, I wrote here about seeing an actor from the TV show “Lost” on the subway. A woman emailed to share a similar story, and with her permission I illustrated her story and put a call out for more stories like these (of meeting or running into people we admire). I got dozens of great responses, and I’ll be sending out a few illustrated renditions each Saturday. Here’s the first batch.

(Words are from the people attributed, drawings are from me!)
