Reuben round-up – Part 2

David Folkman has been doing a little experiment with cartoonists based on a 1947 Life magazine article where cartoonists of the day (like Frank King, Gasoline Alley; Chester Gould, Dick Tracy; Chic Young, Blondie) drew their characters while wearing a blindfold. David had me do one after one of the seminars. Can you tell which is the blindfolded one?

I didn’t take a lot of photos at the Rubes but I made sure I got one of two of our Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship winners, Juana Medina (2009) and Chris Houghton (2010). Both have now graduated. Juana interned with Hilary Price (Rhymes With Orange) and is teaching at RISD. Chris is freelancing and is now an NCS member. I’m the chair of the scholarship committee so I feel a bit like a proud papa.
