Spotlight: “A Farmer’s Hands” by Dale Vande Griend
This short comic project is based on my childhood. I grew up on a farm in Iowa where my dad has worked every day of his life. He is the hardest working yet most loving man I have ever known. With this comic essay, I wanted to let people know that being a farmer takes a unique and special skill set that not many have. You must be hardworking and tough, but at the same time be caring and loving.
