Sunday, 2/17/2013 was a bittersweet day in that Paul Dixon published what will be the last episode for Who’s Minding The Score? (WMTS?); at least, the last one for now…
For those who regularly follow the comic strip, you’ve noticed that the latest story thread has closely paralleled some of the more public labor disputes within American orchestras. Dixon’s cartoons have captured the fury with positively perfect dark satire but it took its toll on the artist and about a month ago, Dixon sent me a message to say he needed to take a break as writing the strip was producing as much heartbreak as cathartic joy.
Ever since launching Adaptistration in 2003, I’ve been searching for a cartoonist to help capture daily life inside the typical American orchestra and almost exactly three years ago, Dixon brought that vision to life.
Fortunately, Dixon is staying on as Adaptistration’s official Editorial Cartoonist and he’s got a special treat in store for tomorrow’s post.
If you aren’t a regular WMTS? reader, now’s your chance to dive in and soak up three years of satirical goodness (although I recommend stopping by the character profile page first). And I encourage everyone to take a moment to send in a comment pointing out which WMTS? episode, character(s), or story thread is your favorite and why.
