Old new New Yorker piece

Well, after a months long accidental hiatus, in which I had a few weeks of technical issues with uploading images, and then a few weeks of travel, and an eternity taking care of a new baby I am finally back to blog all about it.

You will probably never see it now, but I had a piece in the 02Jul12 issue of the New Yorker.

This was an interesting piece process wise. It is the first non-fiction piece I have had to edit. It was to accompany a blurb about the Dragball of the Harlem Renaissance. The first version had an awesome rainbow gradient background. One of the editors, for reasons undisclosed to me, put the kibosh on that and asked for it to be changed.

I can only draw one conclusion as to the reason: the covert, but ongoing, war against awesomeness that our nation is perpetrating.

Here they are. You can compare:
