Richard Thompson wins cartooning's 'Oscar' award

Richard Thompson won the National Cartoonist Society's Reuben Award, named after legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg, in Boston last night. Comic Riffs has the story and also points out that Gary Varvel who won the RFK Journalism Award for editorial cartooning here in DC, also won the NCS editorial cartooning division award.

Here are a few quick photos of Richard's wonderful evening, taken by Chris Sparks. Congrats !

Lynn Johnston ...Gulp

I met Lynn Johnston at Ohio State last year. I opened the door for her and mumbled how much I admire her and I just rambled. She was sweet and thanked me for the kind words and I gave her some information about Team Cul de Sac. It was like meeting my childhood crush.I don't think I have ever been so nervous, I wasn't this nervous at my own wedding! She is so sweet and kind and I must say, one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever met. Lynn, Thank you so much for taking the time and making this beautiful drawing. I already have folks who want a print of this.
