The Sirens cartoon (published June 16), which used the popular myth as a metaphor for the duplicitous allure of Asheville, is my favorite from 2010. I enjoyed creating it because: I was able to use a simple pen-and-ink style (with the benefit of not having to color) as well as an over-flowery narrative; I got a dig in at my hometown of Hendersonville, with which I have a love/hate relationship; and I got to draw hot girls — always more enjoyable than drawing buildings or bureaucrats — and, for once, it was justifiable. — Brent Brown, cartoonist
