Self-Caricature for The Cartoon!st

August 10th, 2012 | Posted in News

It’s customary for the recipient of the National Cartoonist Society’s Reuben Award to do the cover of the post-Reubens newsletter/magazine The Cartoon!st. I was so honored this past May, so here is my cover illustration with self-inflicted caricature and oft-repeated gag of me curling the Reuben statue. The Cartoon!st is a terrific publication, available for only NCS members (if you are not a member…sorry!). The issue contains a fantastic Reuben wrap-up article by member Ed Black. I got mine in the mail today, so I figure it’s in the wild and ok for me to post the cover art . . . but maybe I should have asked the NCS president first . . .
