John Locher Memorial Award
April 13, 2010
It was just announced that I am the winner of the 2010 John Locher Memorial Award, given out annually by the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Here is an excerpt telling a little bit more about the award:
The AAEC/John Locher Memorial Award was founded in 1986 by members of the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists(AAEC). They felt the need to establish an award that would not only honor the memory of John Locher but also would help discover young cartoonists and stimulate interest In editorial cartooning among college-age students In North America.
The Award was named in honor of the late son of Dick and Mary Locher. Dick is a Pulitzer-prize winning editorial cartoonist. He is also both the author and artist for the “Dick Tracy” comic strip.
Needless to say, this is a tremendous honor and one that I am very proud of. I was a runner up the past two years, so to win it my last semester in college is all the more satisfying and rewarding.
