I just heard that I've been nominated for the National Cartoonist Society's Reuben Award in the Newspaper Panel division!!!! This was such a surprise and a huge honor as it is a nomination that comes from your peers, and when your peers are some of the most diverse and talented people out there it means that much more!!! I got a call Thursday night from Sean Parkes who is the current NCS National Representative. I am sure I babbled at him incomprehensibly once he told me... so, thank you, Sean! This is the first time in my pretty long career that I've been nominated, but I've been a judge for the New England chapter many times and I know the thought and discussion that goes into judging each submission. So, a big, big thank you to the Canadian Chapter who judged this division. The set of cartoons I entered were from the feature I've been doing for 18 years for the Rochester Times called "Smile". It even predated "Fair Game"! Now, John and I are going to Vegas!!!
