A Dotted Line Coincidence

Did you happen to catch it? Without any prior planning or coordinating, our August 19th “Dustin” page spoofing a “Family Circus” dotted line gag appeared on the same day as a genuine “Family Circus” dotted line gag.

Philly Reubens Recap

Last weekend I and about 300 colleagues and friends gathered in Philadelphia for the National Cartoonists Society’s annual Reuben Awards– the cartooning world’s answer to The Oscars.

And what another great Reuben Awards weekend it was, despite Steve not being able to be there this year. We live on opposite ends of a continent and don’t get many chances to get together. The Reubens have been a quasi annual business meeting for Team Dustin.
