Michael Emerson, the talented actor who plays Benjamin Linus on Lost, worked as a freelance illustrator for The Boston Globe in the 70's and the 80's. In this interview with Jimmy Fallon, you can see some of his work (he also reads a children's story . . . as only he can). I also worked at The Boston Globe briefly in the 80's.
Maybe we passed one another in the mammoth 24/7 cafeteria where everyone ate. I still remember the blue and black chairs in that space: you sat in a black chair if worked around the presses and might have ink on your clothes; you sat in the blue chairs if you didn't want to end up with ink on your clothes. Otherwise, eveyone ate together and the place was always buzzin'. There was a baker in the kitchen and the pastries in the morning were to die for . . . I probably gained upwards of 10 pounds working there . . .
