Music therapy

This is the first in a mini-series called, "Squirrel and Dr. Katz in ...". These four comics were submitted to the esteemed medical journal, CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) under the guise of Graphic Medicine, and to make a long story short, three of the four were accepted and published in the online journal in three instalments this fall.

Today's instalment, "Music therapy", was the sole rejection. However, the rejection email (everything's electronic these days, so I will have to print it out if I want to melodramatically wallpaper my walls with rejection letters) was wonderful in its own way, providing valuable feedback and praise, despite the rejection. All in all, it has been a great learning experience for this budding cartoonist and a thrill to get a (electronic) publication!

Who knows where Squirrel will end up next? The Journal of Rheumatology? The Canadian Orthopedic Surgery Journal? GUT? Stay tuned!
