Having just received my official 2011 NCS Reuben’s Weekend brochure in the mail yesterday, I would say it’s okay to share the artwork I did for it and this year’s Reuben’s T-Shirt. NCS president Jeff Keane had me do an illustration this year that worked on both the t-shirt and the brochure, which means a lot of cartoon characters. Therefore we didn’t include any of the guest speakers this time around, but limited the “real people” to master of ceremonies Tom Gammill, NCS Gold Key Award (the NCS Hall of Fame) winner Roy Doty, the 2011 Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award recipient R.O. Blechman, and Cartoonist of the Year nominees Glenn Keane, Stephan Pastis and Richard Thompson.This year’s Reubens will be held in Boston, MA.
This is the piece I was inking when on vacation in Hawai’i. The board got a little soggy from the humidity, but on the plus side it smells like the ocean.
