Debbie talks to Nicholas Blechman about growing up with a famous illustrator father, the importance of political satire, and his illustrious career as an illustrator, designer, zine publisher, New York Times art director, and New Yorker creative director. “For satire to be effective it has to be dangerous. So the more it appears as a threat from those in power, then it’s doing its job.”

And remember, we can talk about making a difference, we can make a difference, or we can do both.  — Debbie Millman
