Dan Perkins

Posted by Fabio 8 October 2009

Dan Perkins, who writes and draws the political cartoon “This Modern World” under the name Tom Tomorrow has designed the recent album cover for Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer”. He called his friend from Pearl Jam Eddie Vedder when Village Voice Media, the chain of alternative weekly newspapers, was dropping all syndicated cartoons as a cost-cutting measure, and Mr. Perkins lost 12 papers at once. Luckily Eddie Vedder came to his rescue.
