We will be supporting the Wyakin Warrior
Foundation's fantastic veteran's assistance program, doing live drawing
and meeting with donors at the annual Guardian Ball at the Boise Center
on December 5th.
The Wyakin Warrior Foundation, started by Jeff Bacon with the support of Idaho state senator Marv Hagedorn, directly assists severely wounded post 9/11 veterans as they
journey towards personal and professional success, providing
networking, mentoring, education, and community outreach, tailored to
the individual needs of each member.
It's an absolutely
wonderful organization, and I'm honored to be able to take part. If
you're in the Boise area, consider joining us for the fundraising ball!
You can purchase tickets, read about the Foundation, or make a donation
Thank you Hogan's Alley for the kind words. I have my fingers crossed but it won't be a shame to lose to two guys whose work I admire and consider friends.
"NOMINEES FOR THE MAGAZINE ILLUSTRATION AWARD: Ray Alma, Anton Emdin
and Tom Richmond. Truly a murder’s row of nominees here and one of the
toughest categories to call this year. SHOULD WIN: Alma had a brilliant
year, demonstrating a wide range of approaches, all of which clicked.
WILL WIN: We think Emdin takes this division
on the strength of his prolific, lush and simply gorgeous magazine work
(including for the Australian edition of Mad magazine), but we won’t be
surprised if 2011’s Reuben Award winner (and outgoing NCS president)
Tom Richmond ends up on the dais making an acceptance speech (never
underestimate the power of Mad magazine)."
