Members of the National Cartoonists Society will be receiving the official brochure for the 2015 Reuben Award Weekend in their mailboxes in the next week or so. My cover art above. With it goes the announcements of the speaker lineup and special award winners:
- Mort Drucker– First recipient of the “NCS Medal of Honor”; Speaker
- Jeff Keane– Recipient of the NCS “Silver T-Square” for outstanding dedication to the Society
- Brian Crane– Reuben winning creator of the syndicated comic strip “Pickles”; speaker

Great line up. Hoping everyone will still be talking to me after they see these caricatures I did of them. Pastis still won’t return my phone calls.
