At the Reubens

May 25th, 2007 | Posted in News


Once again it’s time for the National Cartoonist Society‘s annual Reuben Awards, this year in sunny Orlando, FL. We arrived last night and today begins the festivities. There are some great speakers lined up in Sam Gross, Bud Grace, Jerry Van Amerongen and Mort Walker, as well as lot’s of other fun stuff. They’ll be a few MAD men around as well including art director Sam Viviano, former editor Nick Meglin and who knows who else.

As I wrote in this post, I am nominated for a few divisional Reuben awards in “Magazine/Magazine Feature Illustration” and “Advertising Illustration”. I’ll find out on Saturday night if I get to haul any hardware home with me.

In the meantime, I’ve got my digital camera and my laptop, so we’ll be doing some “Live from Orlando” Reuben blogging this weekend.

    Long time lurker, Tom. Great site. I visit it almost daily. Very inspirational for me and others, I’m sure. Just wanted to say thanks and good luck!

    Have a great time! I live in Orlando. Hard to believe so many of my favorite cartoonists are in my own backyard.

    Good luck!
