Photos From The 2018 Reubens Weekend In Philadelphia!

The Reuben Awards are the Oscars of professional cartooning. This past weekend my wife, Karen, and I attended the Reubens in beautiful downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania along with many other members of The National Cartoonists Society. This is a truly wonderful group of people that we are honored to call our friends. Here are some photos from the weekend celebration:

Bodacious Congratulations, Mike Peters!

My wife, Karen and I were so honored to have been able to attend an exhibition honoring the great cartoonist, Mike Peters, who I first met when I was a college student at James Madison University in 1984 and he’s been a friend, an inspiration and a mentor to me ever since.  Mike is a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Dayton Daily News and he creates the hugely popular Mother Goose and Grimm comic strip for King Features.  For almost fifty years, his cartoons have amused, informed and entertained readers.  The exhibition is titled “What A Hoot: A Mike Peters Retrospective” and it is at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University through March 12, 2017.  If you are able to attend, I would certainly encourage you to do so!  Here are some photos from the wonderful weekend:

Studio Wall Art!!

One wall in my studio.

A portion of one wall in my studio.

In previous posts, I have shown you photos of different items in my studio.  This is a portion of a wall in my studio which is just to my left when I am at my drawing table.  It is filled with cartoon art by lots of talented friends of mine and provides me with inspiration daily.
