Cartoons From 1988
Andrew Wahls editorial cartoons continued to develop as he worked for the Lake Stevens High School student newspaper, the Valhalla. Thematically, his cartoons stopped paying attention to teen-centered topics like pep assemblies, and instead focused on real world issues like censorship, consumerism and AIDS. Artistically, Andrews work grew as he became exposed to and was influenced by other cartoonists; primary influences from this time included multi-genre talent Jules Feiffer, comic-book artist John Workman, and Andrews soon-to-be-frequent collaborator, Scott Stine. During this period, Andrew also cartooned under the pen name Theo Herald for his then-girlfriends student newspaper, The (Snohomish High School) Arrowhead.
A Society in Hiding, Deadly Silence [Archive No. 8803] appeared in both the Valhalla and The Arrowhead, and received a second-place award in the Washington Press Association Excellence in Student Journalism competition in 1989.
