Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Been Busy 2

People Working Cooperatively is a service agency here in Cincy whose mission is to do small-to-medium size home repairs that will allow elderly, disabled and lower-income people to stay in their homes, folks who might otherwise find themselves out on the streets or dependent on government programs.

I'm friends with the wise and generous Chuck Hirt, the co-founder of PWC. Chuck now lives in Slovakia, but back in the day he and I used to drive to the various job sites on the day of Repair Affair (their annual all-volunteer day) and entertain the troops with drawings as they worked. It was a blast and I developed a bond with the agency.

2007 marks PWC's 25th anniversary, and I just finished the celebratory logo for this year's Repair Affair last night in the wee hours.

Very nice! Cinci is lucky to have Jim Borgman.

Forgive me for asking this question, but I'm confused by part of the Jails/NFL Draft cartoon of last week. What is the shape that echos the front door? A shadow? (At first I thought it might be a screen door, but that would be on the other side, and open outward.)
I am a student of your work and I think it's a lovely piece.
