A winner of The Social Revolucióun's "New Americano" award for his use of traditional media, web and social media to react to and inspire change in response to current events.
He would have been 95 today. If you're not familiar with his work, he was a cartoonist, artist, illustrator, publisher...a very influential figure in comics. The Eisner Awards, held every year at San Diego Comic Con, are named after him! He did some amazing stuff. (check out the official website)
In case you missed it on Monday, "Tom the Dancing Bug" super-fun-pak comics! (originally mistyped as "Tom the Dancing Butt")
Hello, blog friends! The Cartoonist Studio website contest is in FULL EFFECT, and Sherpa's own T. Shepherd (Snow Sez) wrote me a great email, which pointed out that out of over 100 entries, 25 are Sherpa comics! As Ms. Shepherd says, "I also believe this would be a great opportunity to encourage and support the up-and-coming talent that is on Sherpa."
Below she's listed each Sherpa contestant in alphabetical order with a link to their Sherpa page.
