I’m super excited and honored to announce that I’m going to be speaking at the 2015 National Cartoonists Society Reuben Awards! Perhaps even better, I’ve been caricatured by Mad’s Tom Richmond for the brochure cover! (I’m second in from right under the flag with the glasses, hat, and the giant, and sadly quite accurate, nose.)
You won’t believe the other people speaking:
- Mort Drucker– First recipient of the “NCS Medal of Honor”; Speaker
- Jeff Keane– Recipient of the NCS “Silver T-Square” for outstanding dedication to the Society
- Brian Crane– Reuben winning creator of the syndicated comic strip “Pickles”; speaker
- Doug Mahnke– Superstar comic book artist; speaker
- Juana Medina– Illustrator, first recipient of the Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship; speaker
- Nick Galifianakis– Cartoonist, author, illustrator; speaker
- Ann Telnaes, Pulitizer prize winning editorial cartoonist; moderating a panel on “Cartooning and Free Speech”
I’ll be talking about how I got started cartooning, how I make a living online, and my many spectacular failures.
Hope to see you there!!
