Reflecting on her development from The Cornell Daily Sun to The New Yorker, the artist told Bored Panda: “When drawing for the Daily Sun, I was working within the confines of a comic strip, so I had multiple panels over several days to tell a longer story that could develop over time. The New Yorker cartoons are single-panel jokes, so I had to learn how to convey a lot in a smaller frame.


Discussing how teaching middle school students influences her work, Solomon noted, “Middle school students are the hardest audience for humor. needing to re-evaluate how best to achieve them, I need to constantly think, be willing to change, adapt and learn to appreciate fart jokes on a higher level.

Creating art projects for middle school students is similar to creating ideas for cartoons: they must accommodate different learning abilities, experiences, and skill levels; it has to be understood and it has to be fun.”
