  • Actually, We Bring You Art Every Single Week, LA Times MagazineRick Wartzman, Editor

  • I started working with Donna after many phone discussions about the nature of editorial cartoons, and the flexibility of the genre. There was an opportunity to try something different, and we embarked on it together. Her work is unique in both style and viewpoint.

  • I love your spirit of creativity and enthusiasm for trying out new things. Dr. John Grohol, PsychCentral
  • Best ever, Donna. It’s a privilege to publish your weekly work. Paul Noah, editor Dayton City Paper
