I’m delighted to announce that I have been nominated for a 2008 Ignatz Award in the category of “Promising New Talent”! For those who aren’t familiar with the Ignatz Awards, here’s a description taken from their website:
The Ignatz Awards, named for the character in the classic comic strip Krazy Kat by George Herriman, is a festival prize that recognizes outstanding achievement in comics and cartooning. The ballot is created by a panel of five cartoonists and is then voted on by the attendees [of the Small Press Expo]. This offers a unique reflection of the views the professionals and their fans.
The Ignatz Awards is one of the most prestigious comics awards, so I’m thrilled just to be nominated. Of course I’d be even more thrilled to win, so if you happen to be attending the Small Press Expo next month, please consider voting for me! Thanks!
*UPDATE* I didn’t win. Shucks. But my thanks to those who voted for me, and my congratulations to winner Sarah Glidden!
