We need to raise $75,000 by September 1 to ensure that our newsroom remains strong during this time when accurate and in-depth information is needed the most. While asking for your donation is not something we like to do, the simple fact is that our reporters, our journalism, and our impact rely on it. If you are in a position to help, we would be grateful for your support!
We've raised $38,000 toward our $75,000 campaign goal!
Caleb Hartsfield is a smile on a foggy mirror, a sand castle on the shoreline, a lit wick in the wind. He’s seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, and watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. Something something, tears in rain.
In reality, Caleb Hartsfield is an intern and cartoonist at Honolulu Civil Beat. He makes cartoons, otherwise known as comics, and sometimes known as graphic novels…honestly, he doesn’t know what to call them. As a cartoonist, he’s not concerned with presenting things at face value. He’d rather poke fun at it.
He could tell you his credentials. That he was born and raised in Hawaii, graduated from the University of Hawaii Manoa with a bachelor’s in art, and that during his time the comic editor for Ka Leo he was an award finalist for the Associated College Press.
But what’s the point of all this? It’s not much better than saying he likes long walks on the beach, pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
So if you want to know Caleb, don’t take this bio at face value; try to abstract from it a sense of him and feel free to poke fun at it.
