If you have been a listener of the show for a while, then you know I love cartoons and animation. So having a chance to sit down with this week's guest, Steenz, was a lot of fun. Steenz is one of the few Black women syndicated cartoonists in mainstream funny pages for her work on "Heart of the City", and her work on previous titles has netted her several coveted awards, including the Eisner Award, in the cartoon industry.

We talked about her picking up the torch from Mark Tatulli for "Heart of the City", and she walked me through her creative process for starting on new projects. She also talked how she first got into comics, her teaching at Webster University, and one of her dream projects -- a re-imaginging of Encyclopedia Brown! Keep an eye out for Steenz -- I think we'll be seeing her work in the world for years and years to come!
