Tjeerd Royaards has posted a short update and slide show of our trip over at the Cartoon Movement blog and I wanted to take a moment I don't plan on doing as much real-time cartooning as I did in Afghanistan. The main focus of the trip is to pair a Haitian journalist and cartoonist to do a significant work of comics journalism on reconstruction efforts (and much else) that will run on Cartoon Movement in 2012. We are meeting with artists all this week and have plenty of journalist contacts to go through as well. Dutch video journalist Caroline Bins is joining us in a week to document the trip as well as the cartooning scene in Haiti, a topic Tjeerd and I are focusing on that hasn't really been covered and lays outside the general misery and negativity usually presented about the place. I will likely post some sketches before the trip is through, but I'm saving the bulk of my work for when I return and have time to sit down and do something proper.
