I’m super excited and honored to announce that I’m going to be speaking at the 2015 National Cartoonists Society Reuben Awards! Perhaps even better, I’ve been caricatured by Mad’s Tom Richmond for the brochure cover! (I’m second in from right under the flag with the glasses, hat, and the giant, and sadly quite accurate, nose.)
You won’t believe the other people speaking:
I’ll be talking about how I got started cartooning, how I make a living online, and my many spectacular failures.
Hope to see you there!!
Every so often you see an idea that makes you just want to bang your head with your fist.

Holy cow, are these cards fun! Enjoy them all over at Flickr!
Tom Richmond is one of those guys you idolize as a kid; he’s an artist for Mad, he’s huge, and he’s got his own Batman outfit. (OK, truth be told, I wanna be Tom too.)
Plus he finds the time for really interesting in-depth blog posts that make you admire him even more!
Curse you, Richmond! (Now, back to reading your blog…)
Ran across The Don Martin Dictionary a while ago, and with the Mad’s Greatest Artists: The Completely Mad Don Martin on the way, I’m glad to have such a comprehensive resource at my command.
Plus it’s a heck of a lot of fun!
