After a very late arrival on Friday morning, The Lovely Anna, myself and three of my four kids are in Orlando for the NCS Rueben awards, which are being held at the swanky Ritz Carlton.
Fridays festivities were quite laid back. Jerry Van Amerongen and Mort Walker spoke in the afternoon, and the traditional Friday evening welcome cocktail party was outside under the stars. Here are some pictures from Friday at the Ruebens:
Animator Steve Silver and caricaturist/illustrator Keelan Parham
Anna, Barbie Parham and Brady Parham
Popeye was there! Here he is with my son Tommy..

Heidi Silver and Heather Steckley
Brady gives illustrator Ed Steckley a well deserved nose tweak
“Pearls Before Swine” cartoonist Stephan Pastis and myself
NYC cartoonist Mike Lynch taking a picture of me taking a picture of him
John Reiner (The Lockhorns) and Mel Lazarus (Momma and Miss Peach)
Rick Kirkman (Baby Blues) and myself
There were many other cartooning greats there but I wasn’t as fast with my camera as I wished I was… I was too busy talking shop with everybody. I’ll have many more pictures from tonight’s black tie awards dinner.
