I done been Nominated!
I’m thrilled to announce that the hard work I put into building a t-shirt line last year has paid off with a nomination for best Product/Advertising Illustration at this year’s National Cartoonists Society Reuben Awards!! Yowza!
The Reuben’s are held every year at some swanky hotel in some fancy US city. Cartoonists from all over descend upon the place, drink, eat, draw, sing (yes…sing) and give each other awards. At the black-tie banquet one lucky bastard wins the Cartoonist of the Year and then there are the Division Awards, the Silver T-Square, The Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award …it’s like the Oscars for ink-stained nerds with bad skin and drinking problems. Oh yeah, there’s an award for Amateur Cartoonist Extraordinaire too. This year it goes to “Weird Al” Yankovich.
I’ll be headed to San Diego in May and attending with my bro, Bill. That’s really appropriate because he turned me on to cartoons is the first place (should I blame him or thank him?). Anyway, we’ll get have some laughs drink some beers and hang out with some of my friends and heroes! Photos shall follow.
Good luck to my fellow nominees Sean Parkes and Cedric Hohnstadt
