The Reuben Awards are the Oscars of professional cartooning. This past weekend my wife, Karen, and I attended the Reubens in beautiful downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania along with many other members of The National Cartoonists Society. This is a truly wonderful group of people that we are honored to call our friends. Here are some photos from the weekend celebration:
