Last Thursday in D.C. I was honored to receive the Herblock Prize in cartooning, which comes with a considerable cash award, a fancy trophy, and a beautiful reception at the Library Of Congress. I figured something like this may never happen to me again so I tried to soak it up while I could – and deliver an acceptance speech that wasn't a flop.
Garry Trudeau gave the night's lecture, which is available online as well. Michal Cavna of the Post interviewed me before the reception, the results of which are up on his blog.
I also wanted to do something here I neglected in the speech – give a shout out to my colleague Jen Sorensen, who was the finalist. So shout out to Jen!
