Editor’s note: The Desert Sun recently welcomed freelance cartoonist Tom Deisboeck to create original ‘toons for the opinion pages. The following Q&A interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Q: I wanted to start off by saying welcome to The Desert Sun. Tell us a little bit about who you are and your interest in cartooning.

A: Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here. Well, the story is that I actually went to medical school a long time ago. In a former life, it seems. I used to work full time as a medical scientist at an institution in Boston that I’m still affiliated with. I went to medical school in Germany — in Munich, and then came over to the States in ’97, stayed ever since.
