August 19, 2014 — Today marks my last issue with A List Apart.
Illustration can be a solitary endeavor, and my particular method of crafting demands a lot more isolation than I’d prefer. But A List Apart has always helped me feel a lot less alone, yesterday more than ever.
It has been my absolute pleasure and honor to work on this magazine for the past nine years. Jeffrey gave me a place to dream, to run without fear. There is no question in my mind that I could not have succeeded as an illustrator without it.
I have had the opportunity to work with some of the smartest and most talented people I’ve ever met in my life. The chance to help tell their stories, and voice their passion. To serve an amazing and rare community that prefers to build rather than tear down.
To those of you who read, who have contributed, and especially to those who make A List Apart, I bid thanks and a fond farewell. Words cannot express how you’ve made me feel.
