  • For over 2 years I have worked as a contract illustrator at both of these city papers. I started with the odd cover illustration and moved up to bi-weekly editorial illustration in both the Ask Greg column and the News Quirkscolumn. 

     Below you will find the question in which Greg was asked and my accompanying illustration.

  • You mentioned inyour muffin vs. cupcake column that method of reproduction was one factor biologistsuse to classify animals. According to a news report I read awhile back, the duck-billedplatypus is one of only two egg-laying mammals in the world. Do you know why thisis?

  •  Whatis the difference between a cupcake and muffin?
  • When I was akid, I remember learning in school that there were nine planets. But I heard recentlythat Pluto isnt a planet anymore, so now there are only eight. How can thatbe?
