It’s Reuben Awards weekend — this year the National Cartoonist Society’s big bash is happening in Portland, OR. Come one out and meet Lynn (and a long list of other cartoonists) on Sunday, May 28th from 1pm-4pm at the Hilton Portland Executive Atrium Ballroom (try saying that five times fast!)
Enjoy — and good luck to all the Reuben nominees.
Since Lynn retired from drawing For Better or For Worse®, she’s been making different kinds of art. She’s been painting, and experimenting with creating fun, cartoony pattern designs. Lynn and her design crew have been enjoying this so much, they’ve decided to take the patterns to the Surtex convention, which is happening now at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
