Created in partnership with the popular cultural blog HiLoBrow and TheAtlantic.com, in 2010 I had an idea and started sifting through the massive trove of then-recently released Wikileaks cables.
I had an instinct that, amongst both the jaw-dropping revelations and load of boring mundanity, there was human stories that could be told and humanize both the business of statecraft and the actors caught up in this drama.I made ten mini-comics
from found cables, and the response was overwhelming, far more than I thought there would be, with stories about from Washington DC to Brazil, in place like The Atlantic
, Reddit, The Guardian
, and boingboing.
I even got interviewed for Benjamen Walker's brilliant show, Too Much Information
. I only sound slightly stupid.
