Last week I showed you a selection of Workfarce cartoons that I’ll be sending to the National Cartoonists Society for consideration in one of the annual awards categories (“Online Comics”) at the annual Reuben Awards (the Oscars for cartoonists).
This week I’ll show you the military cartoons that will be thrown into competition with a lot of my buddies in the “Single Panel Newspaper Cartoons” category, who (unfortunately) happen to be excellent and successful cartoonists. Since most of the people judging have no military experience, I try to select those that will translate outside of our unique world. It’s a tall order, but in the immortal words of the great country philosopher Garth Brooks, if I never tried, “I may have missed the pain, but I would have missed the dance.”
Or at least the chance to win.
