About the Artist:
Eddie Ahn enjoys cartooning and lives in San Francisco. His work "Sidewalk Empire" is a serialized comic strip about a coffee cart operator and an angry turtle trying to survive in the city. Hyphenmagazine.com will publish two story arcs for "Sidewalk Empire": "The Avenues" and "Streets."
Founded in 2002, Hyphen is a nonprofit news and culture magazine and blog that illuminates Asian America through hard-hitting investigative features on the cultural and political trends shaping the fastest-growing ethnic population in the country. We offer in-depth profiles of change-makers in our community and a window into the world of artists and writers who are re-envisioning and rewriting what it means to be Asian American.
