Cartoonist survives Covid; responds by drawing a cartoon about it

Cartoonist Jason Chatfield reveals what it’s like to get the coronavirus. (Spoiler alert: it’s horrible). So what’s a cartoonist to do after surviving Covid19? Do a cartoon about it of course! His graphic (in more ways than one) tale of surviving the plague is must reading:

We here at the AAEC are glad to hear he and his wife are on the other side of this. Chatfield — the current president of the National Cartoonists Society, and a prolific scribbler for the New Yorker and other publications — is a truly great guy, and we wish him the best as he recovers.
