Shannon Wheeler


Shannon is a cartoonist for The New Yorker based in Portland, Oregon, USA. Drawings are his journal, they’re how he remembers where he was and what he was thinking, even years prior.

"Creativity can show that we're not alone in the universe. There's other people out there that feel the same thing."

What did he send in the Wonderful Post?: Shannon’s Wonderful Post is a tear-out from his sketchpad, showing the situation he was in when he created his post. Accompanying Shannon’s drawing was a personalised note to the lucky recipient, plus a copy of his recent book, ‘Sh*t My President Says’.

If you were going to swap a piece of creative snail mail that expressed who you were and where you’re from to a fellow Wonderful Post participant somewhere on planet Earth, what would you send?
