THE BIG TWO TWO

As this past year was year 21 for Rhymes With Orange, much of my time was spent wandering Vegas with a yard-long plastic margarita glass hanging from my neck.  It’ll be good to finally get back home and put my feet up.  My cat suggests an extravaganja, but I’m more inclined to a cupcake. (That’s just catnip, I swear.)

THIS WEEK’S GUEST CARTOONIST

Once again, welcome back the amazing and talented Rina Piccolo!  While I was in SF cavorting at the Queers and Comics conference last month, Rina took the helm.  So you’ll be seeing her work all this week.

Rina is a avid sketchbooker.  Here’s a piece from her blog post “Musings On Keeping A Sketchbook Journal.”

THE NOMINATION

I am honored this year to be nominated for the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award.  The big party is over Memorial Day, this time in Portland OR, and there’s some stiff competition for the big prize.  Check out the other nominees:

WHAT I’M WEARING TO THE AWARDS DINNER

I just need to find a turtleneck to match.

VISITING THE ED EMBERLEY EXHIBIT

A couple months ago, a bunch of New England cartoonists went to Worcester, MA to see a retrospective by the Ed Emberley, who wrote THE most influential drawing book I’ve ever had. AND here are the original pages of that book!  AND Ed himself was there.  AND he signed my book.  Mind blown.

So that’s the wrap up.  Thanks for tuning in!

Hilary
