Few projects are as satisfying to the creators as a book collaboration between a parent and an adult child, where each brings their own and different set of talents to the project.
“Zeitgeist Meetup,” written by Tom Achilles and illustrated by Pat Achilles is an example. Son Tom Achilles is a stand-up comedian in New York City. Mother Pat Achilles is an artist and cartoonist whose cartoons have appeared in New Yorker magazine. Together they have produced a comical commentary on life in the big city today – and more.
