The Cartoon Spring Competition

Eisner Nomination for Neufeld's 'Bahrain'

Josh Neufeld has been nominated for a prestigious Eisner Award in the Best Digital Comic category for "Bahrain: Lines in Ink, Lines in the Sand", a piece Cartoon Movement published in December.

In "Bahrain", Neufeld tells the true story of Mohammed and Sara, two young Bahraini editorial cartoonists who found themselves on opposite sides of their country's short-lived Pearl Revolution. Neufeld met them both at workshops he led while visiting the tiny Persian Gulf country on a U.S. State Department trip. As Josh stayed in touch with them through Facebok, Bahrain exploded in protests inspired by the Arab Spring.

The Washington Post's Michael Cavna interviewed Josh about the process of seeing two cartoonists take different sides in a revolutionary uprising and telling their story through comics.
