The National Cartoonists Society has announced three nominees for the 2014 Reuben Award for “Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year.” Pearls Before Swine cartoonist Stephan Pastis is among the elite!
It’s been an incredible year for Stephan Pastis. Last June, he collaborated with Bill Watterson, who guest-illustrated a series of Pearls Before Swine strips. In addition to creating Pearls Before Swine, Pastis is also the author of the children’s book series “Timmy Failure.”
The highest honor that the profession bestows, the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year is chosen by a secret ballot of the members of the National Cartoonists Society.
The winner of the 2014 “Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year” will be announced on May 23 at the annual NCS Reuben Awards dinner in Washington D.C.
Congratulations, Stephan! Your friends at GoComics are rooting for you!
